Automotive imaging radars require high angular resolution which can be achieved by a large antenna aperture. In order to obey Nyquist spatial sampling rate, a large number of array elements and receive channels is required. In practice, this solution results in a prohibitively high cost and complexity. This work proposes a new cognitive receiver configuration, in which a large number of sensor array elements is connected to a small number of receive channels via a switching matrix. The state of the switching matrix is sequentially updated using information from previous observations and prior information. According to the proposed scheme, denoted as cognitive antenna selection (CASE), the state of the switching matrix is obtained by the minimization of conditional Bayesian bounds on the mean-squared-error of the direction-of-arrival estimate. We show that the Bayesian Cramér-Rao bound (BCRB) is an inappropriate optimization criterion since it ignores the effect of ambiguity. This work proposes the Bobrovski-Zakai bound (BZB), which accounts for the effect of ambiguity, as a criterion for cognitive antenna selection. The performance of the proposed CASE-BZB approach is evaluated via simulations in single and multiple target scenarios. It is shown that the CASE-BZB outperforms random and linear switching algorithms both asymptotically and in the threshold region.
