Radar sensors have become an integral part of advanced driver assistance
systems. Merely detecting targets will not, however, advance their
contribution. Rather, an object classification capability is required to
distinguish vulnerable road users from other objects, such as vehicles.
In this paper, we present a novel pedestrian classification procedure,
which uses image features from the range-Doppler-Matrix created by a 79
GHz chirp sequence radar. Experiments show single measurement success
rates of 88% for a bandwidth of 1.6 GHz. Moreover, the robustness of the
classification process is consolidated with a tracking algorithm.
Implemented in vehicles, this can be a major contribution to protect
vulnerable road users.
