Abstract [en]

The problem of classifying road vehicles according to vehicle type is considered. The proposed solution is based on using vehicle height and length and height profiles obtained by a microwave (MW) radar sensor. We show that if the radar sensor satisfies certain requirements, then a precise feature vector can be extracted, and simple deterministic algorithms can be applied to determine the vehicle class. Field trials using a spread-spectrum MW radar sensor system operating on these principles have been carried out. They confirm that accurate classification of a large number of vehicle classes can be reached
