Abstract:
Examples relating to vehicle radar systems are described. An example radar system may include a radar transmission unit located on a top portion of a vehicle configured to transmit an omnidirectional radar signal. The system may also include a radar unit comprising a plurality of radar reception arrays. The radar unit may be configured to rotate around an axis and receive radar reflections by one or more of the radar reception arrays. Additionally, the system may include a processing unit. The processing unit may be configured to process the received radar reflections to determine reflection information and control the vehicle based on the determined reflection information.
