Modern millimeter-wave automotive radars are employed to keep a safe distance between vehicles and reduce the collision risk when driving. Meanwhile, an on-board radar module is supposed to operate in the line-of-sight condition, which limits its sensing capabilities in intersections with obstructed visibility. Therefore, this paper investigates the scheme with passive reflector, enabling the automotive radar to detect an approaching vehicle in the non-line-of-sight (blind) urban intersection. First, extensive radar measurements of the backscattering power are carried out with the in-house assembled millimeter-wave radar equipment. Next, the measured data is employed to calibrate an accurate analytical model, deduced and described in this paper. Finally, the analytical models are deployed to define the optimal parameters of the radar scheme in the particular geometry of the selected intersection scenario. Specifically, it is found that the optimal angular orientation of the reflector is 43.5, while the 20 m curvature radius shows better performance compared to a flat reflector. Specifically, the curved convex shape increases scattering power by 20 dB in the shadow region and, thus, improves the detection probability of the vehicle, approaching the blind intersection.
