About the Project

Co-supervisor: Prof. Baojiang Li (JITRI)

Co-supervisor: Prof. Fei Ma (XJTLU)

Co-supervisor: Dr. Linglong Yuan (UoL) 

Cameras can perceive the appearance, color, and shape information of objects in the environment and are widely used in object classification, object detection, object segmentation, object tracking and other fields. However, it has drawbacks in recognizing the distance and speed of an object. Radar (refers to millimeter-wave radar in this project) uses the Doppler principle to measure the distance and speed of the object, and is not affected by external factors in the weather. Therefore, the combination of camera and radar can realize the perception of all-round attributes of the object and can meet the needs of working in all-weather conditions. At present, with the rapid development of deep learning technology, multi-sensor fusion has attracted more and more attention. However, the technology of radar-camera fusion is far from mature, especially the multi-modal object association, object detection and tracking technology in the moving environment, which has also become a bottleneck restricting the wide application of radar-camera fusion technology. This project takes radar-camera fusion as the research object and conducts systematic research on the perception of the environment by the radar-camera, the processing and understanding of sensor information, and the mapping of perception information to the decision. Besides, this project applies the method of deep learning to the fusion of radar and camera to establish a unified deep learning model to analyze the data of radar and camera. In addition, this project will also be combined with actual scenarios to develop products of radar-camera integration in intelligent transportation, assisted driving, consumer electronics, security monitoring, robots and other industries.
