Radar, RFID, wireless sensor and wireless locating systems are essential for automotive advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), autonoumous driving and flying, robotics, industrial automation, logistics and novel human machine interfaces. Further key areas include medical electronics, building technology and cyber-physical systems. The course RWS is an introduction into functional principles, building blocks, hardware and signal processing concepts and applications of modern radar, RFID, wireless sensor and real time locating systems. Covered applications include automotive radar, road and air traffic control systems, as well as robotics, industrial automation and medical technology. This course is held in English. Except for the lecture language RWS is an identical replacement of the former course Drahtlose Sensoren, Radar- und RFID-Systeme DSR.
