The rapidly increasing automation - e.g. the developments towards autonomous driving and the progression of Industry 4.0 - implicates growing demands on presence and motion detection for higher safety. Due to the availability of affordable high frequency components, novel packaging solutions and advanced production processes Radar sensors are no longer associated only with huge and expensive systems. They are low cost solutions for measurement tasks, which cannot be covered satisfactorily with optical or acoustic/ultrasound systems. Nowadays Radar sensors are omnipresent and can be found in many situations of everyday life, where they might not be expected. This paper describes various applications for commercial microwave sensors, explains specific challenges and shows individual solutions regarding Radar hardware, modulation techniques and signal processing.
