Detailed information
Original study plan Master's programme Mechatronics 2022W
Objectives Students have hands-on experience in handling of RF components and measurement equipment required for the development of radar systems; They can implement different radar concepts and apply them to real-world measurements; They can verify radar theory results by means of measurements and implement radar signal processing algorithms in Python.
  • Characterization of typical RF components used in radar systems;
  • Automation of RF measurement equipment (GPIB, SCPI, ...)
  • Practical implementation of FSCW, FMCW, and range-Doppler radar systems
  • Measurement of range, velocity, and position
  • System modelling, noise analysis, influence of practical hardware


  • DFT based signal processing algorithms in Python, including two-dimensional analysis for range-Doppler and beamforming applications
Criteria for evaluation Written protocols for the individual tasks and ongoing collaboration
Methods Practical implementation of radar systems and corresponding signal processing techniques
