An approach to converge communication and RADAR technologies for intelligent transportation system


The Intelligent Transport System (ITS) is an important and critical embedded system which should be carefully designed to fulfill the goals for safety and non-safety applications. ITS has been the umbrella under which significant efforts have been conducted in research, development, testing, deployment and integration of advanced technologies to improve the measures of effectiveness of national highway network. Efforts are being imparted towards a combined system of both communication and remote sensing technology. In the paper, the combined system construction principle of RADAR-location and information transmitting is considered. We modeled a communication and RADAR combined system in MATLAB considering WCDMA simulation model as reference. We considered moving target for simulation and it is detected at the RADAR receiver while the received information signal is processed through RAKE receiver to achieve low BER value. Thus the combined system is running successfully and satisfying both the requirements. This design can be implemented on reserved channel of Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) for Intelligent Transport System (ITS) application.
Keywords: Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS); RADAR; WCDMA.
