Joint Design of Transmit Waveforms for Object Tracking in Coexisting Multimodal Sensing Systems
AbstractWe examine a multiple object tracking problem by jointly optimizing the transmit waveforms used in a multimodal system. Coexisting sensors in this system were assumed to share the same spectrum. Depending on the application, a system can include radars tracking multiple targets or multiuser wireless communications and a radar tracking both multiple messages and a target. The proposed spectral coexistence approach was based on designing all transmit waveforms to have the same time-varying phase function while optimizing desirable performance metrics. Considering the scenario of tracking a target with a pulse–Doppler radar and multiple user messages, two signaling schemes were proposed after selecting the waveform parameters to first minimize multiple access interference. The first scheme is based on system interference minimization, whereas the second scheme explores the multiobjective optimization tradeoff between system interference and object parameter estimation error. Simulations are provided to demonstrate the performance tradeoffs due to different system requirements. View Full-Text
