Automotive radars at the Terahertz (THz) frequency band have the potential to be compact and lightweight while providing high (nearly-optical) angular resolution. In this paper, we propose a bistatic THz automotive radar that employs the recently proposed orthogonal chirp division multiplexing (OCDM) multi-carrier waveform. As a standalone communications waveform, OCDM has been investigated for robustness against interference in time-frequency selective channels. The THz-band path loss, and, hence, radar signal bandwidth, are range-dependent. We address this unique feature through a multicarrier wideband OCDM sensing transceiver that exploits the coherence bandwidth of the THz channel. We develop an optimal scheme to combine the returns at different ranges/bandwidths by assigning weights based on the Cramér-Rao lower bound on the range and velocity estimates. Numerical experiments demonstrate improved target estimates that can be obtained using our proposed combined estimation from measurements with varied attenuation at THz bands. © 2023 IEEE.
