Millimeter-waves are expected to play a key role in next 5G scenario due to the availability of a large clean unlicensed bandwidth at 60 GHz and the possibility to realize packed antenna arrays, with a consequent increase of the communication capacity and the introduction of new functionalities, such as high-definition localization and personal radar for automatic environment mapping. In this paper we propose the adoption of millimeter-wave transmitarrays for personal radar applications and we investigate the impact of the radiation pattern characteristics on the map reconstruction accuracy, by analysing how the number of array elements, of quantization bits and the focal distance affect the environment reconstruction performance.

Abstract

Millimeter-waves are expected to play a key role in next 5G scenario due to the availability of a large clean unlicensed bandwidth at 60 GHz and the possibility to realize packed antenna arrays, with a consequent increase of the communication capacity and the introduction of new functionalities, such as high-definition localization and personal radar for automatic environment mapping. In this paper we propose the adoption of millimeter-wave transmitarrays for personal radar applications and we investigate the impact of the radiation pattern characteristics on the map reconstruction accuracy, by analysing how the number of array elements, of quantization bits and the focal distance affect the environment reconstruction performance.
