No Sensors, No Perception: Let’s Test Them Properly

Sensor perception technology

NI, with our partners, optimizes automotive sensor testing by improving the cycle time and test throughput while maximizing quality, minimizing the cost of test, and accelerating the time-to-market through:

  • Openness—Software-centric systems enable customization and compatibility with third-party technology 
  • Reuse and Scalability—Leverage the same platform and IP across the whole product lifecycle and test teams to replicate and deploy programs globally
  • Parallelism—Minimize test time through inherent parallel test system architectures and state-of-the-art instrumentation technology
  • Futureproofing—Best-in-class solutions that adapt to changing requirements and upcoming technologies

Sensor Test Across the Product Lifecycle

NI helps you to easily test the various sensors such as cameras, radar, lidar, V2X, GNSS, and more for the vehicle to fully perceive the environment and ensure safety. By connecting software, data, and hardware into NI’s test system architecture, sensors are tested thoroughly as individual components and integrated systems through the validation and manufacturing phases (V-Model). Our test systems are built on open industry standards like PXI, providing compact, modular, and flexible instrumentation-grade I/O paired with an open software architecture capable of upgrading at the speed of new sensor and standard development—while leveraging the same IP across the whole product lifecycle. With NI’s best-in-class ADAS and AD solutions and the support of a vast ecosystem of subject matter experts around the globe, you can perform and match your sensor tests at the pace of your sensor development.

Vehicle sensor perception

Every emerging generation of camera typically has a new custom communications protocol. By using the NI platform, we are keeping pace with our demanding industry’s continual evolution. Reusing skillsets, software, and hardware empowers us to not only be successful in our present endeavors, but also gives us the confidence to welcome future challenges.
