Ural Federal University: Radars for Unmanned Vehicles Presented in Ekaterinburg

Yesterday, in Ekaterinburg, a radar for pilotless transport was presented to journalists. The project is based on the experience of specialists from State Enterprise Scientific Production Association Of Automation in creating control systems for pilotless vehicles and smart farming systems, as well as the competence of scientists at Ural Federal University in the design and modeling of close-range, small-sized elements of miniature structures, individual emitters and antenna arrays for high-frequency elements and devices.

Radar applications are crucial in industrial and agricultural driver assistance systems. The technology is also resistant to adverse weather conditions such as rain, snow, fog and dust clouds. The radars combine a high probability of detecting obstacles at an appropriate range with providing additional information on the radio-electronic profile, speed and angular coordinate of the object, allowing the head-end system to identify its type.

“The radar detects moving targets and is used for emergency braking and traffic accident prevention. It can detect moving targets at a distance of up to 250 meters and at speeds of up to 200 km/h. It can be used with trucks, cars, farm machines, harvesters, tractors and can even be used with railway transport. Technical characteristics of the radar correspond with the best world analogues. The R&D of the project is coming to an end this year, the development and serial deliveries are planned from 2022,” says Anton Kapustin, deputy director for civilian production at State Enterprise Scientific Production Association.

In Ekaterinburg the three-day strategic session on the development of the World-class Ural Interregional Research and Education Center (UIREC) is ended. It was attended by representatives of universities, academic institutions and authorities of the Sverdlovsk, Kurgan and Chelyabinsk Regions.
