Research opportunities exist to design, implement, and test algorithms for enhanced object recognition using sensor data, particularly but not limited to, radar. Advances in sensor fusion, sensor tasking, and autonomous sensing are of interest. Understanding the connection between an objects physical characteristics and its recognition is also of interest.
