Millimeter-wave joint vehicular communication and radar would allow intelligent transportation systems to simultaneously reap the benefits of autonomously sensing the driving environment (via radar) and cooperatively exchanging information among vehicles (via communication). It will have significant advantages in terms of cost, size, performance (high communication data rate and estimation accuracy of radar parameters) and spectrum usage. To establish the proof-of-concept that the systems can be combined together in real-world settings, we are working on building a flexible and extensible mmWave joint radar and communication testbed. This is crucial because joint mmWave communication/radar is in its infancy.
