Using radio for radar in the front yard of Hervanta campus

Research focus and goals

In the positioning and sensing/radar research area, we seek to develop not only high-efficiency positioning algorithms for various use-cases through sophisticated data fusion and signal processing solutions, but also location-aware methods utilizing the positioning information in order to enhance the network functionalities by means of proactive radio resource management and location-based beamforming, for instance 

We also study and develop new radar and other radio-based sensing technologies, with applications in commercial and defense/security domains. New waveforms and signal processing solutions in time, frequency and spatial domains are studied, developed and demonstrated. We also study and develop the concept of RF convergence or multi-functional RF systems, where radar and radio communication functionalities are merged to same frequencies and/or hardware platforms.
