This book provides a complete overview of radar system theory and design for consumer applications, from basic short range radar theory to the integration into the real-world products, focusing particularly on gesture sensing in consumer products. It brings you step-by-step through the theoretical understandings, design procedures, analysis tools, and design examples of radar systems.


Packed with practical guidance learned from real consumer product development, the book explains how radar works in plain language; provides design principles applied in consumer products; demonstrates algorithms with real world measurement data; describes system trade-offs and cross-functional solutions for solving integration challenges; equips you to design your own radars in consumer electronics for motion sensing and gesture controls.


The book focuses on consumer-oriented radar systems with its theory, specifications, application, challenges in integration and co-existence with other radio components. It is self-contained to cover radar hardware, waveforms/modulations, signal processing, detection and classification, machine learning and UX design.


With its unique coverage of consumer-oriented radar systems, coupled with the authors’ practical experience in designing radars for today’s consumer products, this is a must-have book for engineers and researchers working with radar systems in consumer electronics and mobile devices such as cell phone, wearables, and in the automotive industry. Downloadable MATLAB® scripts and Simulink models are included.

  • Jian Wang

    received his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Victoria, Canada and B.Sc. from Ocean University of China. He joined Google in 2017 as systems lead to transform Project Soli into consumer products. The Soli radar was successfully integrated in 2019 Pixel phones. Prior to Google, Jian worked for Apple Inc. on their special project of autonomous systems as a lead systems architect. His research interests include everything related to radar, array signal processing, MIMO, detection and estimation theories, target tracking, EM simulation, and antenna design. Dr. Wang holds 9 U.S./international patents and another 8 pending.

  • Jaime Lien

    holds a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Stanford University, where her research focused on interferometric synthetic aperture radar theory and techniques. She is the Radar Research Lead of Project Soli at Google Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP). She leads a technical team developing novel radar sensing techniques and systems for human perception and interaction. Soli radar technology has enabled new modes of touchless interaction in consumer wearables and devices, including Google’s Pixel 4 smartphone, Home Hub, and Nest Thermostat. Prior to Google, Dr. Lien worked as a communications engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Her current research interests include radar signal processing and sensing algorithms; modeling and analysis of the underlying RF physics; and inference on radar data.
