A new method for target localization in MIMO radar is proposed. Localization of a moving, non-maneuvering target is possible by using Doppler-shift measurements and angle information in MIMO radar systems. This is a nonlinear problem and it must be solved for a grid search strategy. If the received frequencies and the angels between the target and the transmitter and the target and the receiver are known, we can search space grid by grid for desired (x, y) coordinates to find the position of the target in 2D space.
