This thesis addresses the problem of object detection with automotive radar sensors in the field of intelligent vehicles with special attention to vulnerable road users: pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists. It is not the goal of this work to improve the hardware design or signal processing algorithms of the radar sensors themselves, but to take the output of these sensors as “given”, and to propose various ways to use them for road user detection. To facilitate the reading, a brief introduction to the operating principles of radar sensors and their advantages and limitations is first given. Subsequently, the thesis discusses automotive radar based detection of road users based on three different types of radar data....
