22 December 1995 Data-driven control of sonar array transducers
Author Affiliations +
The use of a curved array airborne ultrasound transducer for autonomous vehicle navigation is described. The physical array configuration enables beam steering, beamshaping and beamforming to be efficiently implemented, and this implementation is discussed. A procedure for dynamically evaluating the local environment to determine the most appropriate direction and beam shape is proposed. Simulation results are presented that compare this technique with conventional scanning procedures.
