Seminar on Automotive Radar



Event Date: 
Friday, January 20, 2023 -

The Department of Electrical Engineering invites you to a seminar on Automotive Radar scheduled on Jan 20, 2023, | 3 PM | D330 Shiv Nadar IoE Delhi NCR campus. This talk will present an overview of recent research in FUNLAB around using vehicular radar for advanced driver assistance systems (en route to a future vision of autonomous driving). Wideband (typically FMCW or chirp) radars are increasingly deployed onboard vehicles as critical high-resolution sensors for environmental mapping/imaging and various safety features. The talk will focus on the evolving role of radar `cognition’ in complex operating environments to address two crucial future challenges:

1. Mitigating multi-access interference among Radars (e.g., dense traffic scenario)
The talk will first illustrate the impact of mutual interference on detection performance in Chirp/FMCW radars and then highlight some multi-access protocol design approaches for effective resource sharing among multiple radars.

2. Contributions to radar vision via new radar hardware (MIMO radar) + associated advanced signal processing (Synthetic Aperture principles) as well as Convolutional Neural Network (`Radar Net’) based machine learning approach for enhanced object detection/classification in challenging circumstances.


Sumit Roy (Fellow, IEEE 2007) received the B. Tech. Degree from the Indian Institute of Technology (Kanpur) in 1983, and the M. S. and Ph. D. degrees from the University of California (Santa Barbara), all in Electrical & Comp. Engineering (1985 and 1988, respectively), and an M. A. in Statistics and Applied Probability (1988). His research interests and technology expertise spans analysis/design and prototyping of wireless communication systems/networks, emphasizing 5G/beyond 5G technologies with diverse applications such as private enterprise verticals, multi-standard inter-networking/coexistence, and dynamic spectrum access solutions for spectrum sharing. He was elevated to IEEE Fellow by the Communications Society for ``contributions to multi-user communications theory and cross-layer design of wireless networking standards” and held the ECE-CoE Integrated Systems Term Professorship (2014-19) at Univ. of Washington in recognition of his international reputation in the area. 

He spent 2001-03 on academic leave at Intel Wireless Technology Lab as a Senior Researcher engaged in systems architecture definition and IEEE standards contributions for ultra-wideband systems (Wireless PANs) and next-generation high-speed (pre 802.11n) wireless LANs. He served as Science Foundation of Ireland Isaac Walton Fellow during a sabbatical at University College, Dublin (Jan-Jun 2008) and was the recipient of a Royal Acad. Engineering (UK) Distinguished Visiting Fellowship during summer 2011. During 2014-15, he spent a sabbatical year at Microsoft Research, Bangalore, India, as Erskine Fellow at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, and as Short-Term Visiting Foreign Expert at Shanghai JiaoTung University. His research has been consistently funded by various US agencies and industrial organizations, leading to 10 awarded US patents, and his work on Radar-WiFi Spectrum Sharing, published in 2016, was recognized by IEEE Trans. Aersosp. Elect. Systems with Barry Carlton (Best Paper) Award. He has been professionally active in IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) – having served as Associate Editor for all the major ComSoc publications at various times. He was selected for two stints as IEEE ComSoc Distinguished Lecturer 2013-2015, and 2017-18 and was elected to Executive Comm. Member for the National Spectrum Consortium ( Since 2020, he has served as Program Lead for Innovate Beyond 5G program within US OUSD R&E’s Beyond 5G initiative
