Project Metamoran: Exploring mmWave Radar and Camera Fusion for High-Resolution and Long-Range Depth Imaging



In this paper, we seek a solution for depth imaging of such objects of interest at high accuracy (few tens of cm) over extended ranges (up to 300 meters) from a single vantage point, such as a pole mounted platform. Unfortunately, the rich literature in depth imaging using camera, lidar and radar in isolation struggles to meet these tight requirements in real-world conditions. This paper proposes Metamoran, a solution that explores long-range depth imaging of objects of interest by fusing the strengths of two complementary technologies: mmWave radar and camera.
