Ultrasonic FMCW Radar

This project’s goal was to design a simple FMCW radar system using ultrasonic sensors that would perform a linear frequency sweep of a CHIRP signal to detect nearby objects. A texas instruments TM4C123G LaunchPad micro-controller gathers the data from the sensors and sends it to a PC-client, which would plot the FFT of the data and thus can be extended to show the distances of the nearby objects.


My Role in The Project

This project was done as a part of my bachelor study at Hamburg University of Applied Sciences. I participated by designing and implementing the PC-client, and the other team members designed the sensor circuit and the programmed the micro-controller. The PC-client was made using C++/Qt.
