With extensive use of automotive radars, mutual interference between radars has become a crucial issue, since it increases the noise floor in the frequency domain triggering frequent false alarms and unsafe decision. This paper introduces a mathematical model for a frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) radar in interfering environments. In addition, this paper proposes a time-domain interference suppression method to provide anti-interference capability regardless of the signal-to-interference ratio. Numerical results are presented to verify the performance of a 77GHz FMCW radar systme with the proposed method in interference-rich environments.
