Summary: 
In automotive radar, pulse integration scheme is expected to be useful for suppressing the road clutter effectively. For the ultra-wideband radar at 24 GHz, however, a large number of pulse integrations should be required in order to suppress the road clutter because of significantly spiky clutter component in each range-bin. In this paper, the weight pulse integration method using occurrence probability of a target and clutter is suggested and the performance is experimentally investigated.
