This publication describes a radar API that enables different radar options to be used without changing higher level software layers. The radar API supports frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) radar and other radar types. The radar API also supports interleaved radar configurations, so that different features may use different burst configurations simultaneously. For example, the radar API may support a dual burst configuration, where a first configuration is optimized for the longest range and a second configuration uses a wider bandwidth optimized for better range resolution. Together, the burst configurations may run simultaneously so that the algorithms supporting different features may consume their optimal input stream.
