Proceedings of the European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO 2020)
In modern vehicles a variety of sensors like radar, camera and lidar are combined in order to precisely sense the environment. This data is utilized by advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) to provide comfort features and increased safety for the occupants. To cope with the demands of this growing market, it is necessary to attract young people to so-called science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) studies and encourage them to contribute to this highly innovative topic. Therefore, we developed a workshop on radar-based ADAS to motivate pre-university students for STEM education and careers. In this paper we will present the individual hardware and software components as well as the basic structure of this practical hands-on training. Finally, we will shortly outline the spin-off projects resulting from the continuous development.
