Safety and ADAS features like autonomous emergency braking (AEB) or rear cross traffic alert (RCTA) rely on radars to function properly. As automotive radars evolve to have 4 GHz of bandwidth, testing becomes more challenging since more test coverage is needed for both parametric and simulation test. Additionally, the reliability needed calls for higher levels of accuracy and repeatability in the test system. At the same time, organizations cannot lose sight of future requirements like higher bandwidth sensors or different antennae designs. Taking all of this into consideration, there is an industry need for a system capable of:
The 4 GHz Vehicle Radar Test System (VRTS) performs highly repeatable and accurate radar obstacle simulation and parametric measurements in parallel to reduce test time.
Affordable and easy to upgrade, NI-based radar test solutions are modular, flexible, and capable of addressing all validation and production test and measurement needs.
VRTS integration partners provide solutions leveraging NI RF test systems, including anechoic chambers, mechatronics, actuation, and software development.
Reduce takt time, capital expenses, and footprint by performing parametric and simulation test in parallel for 77 GHz and 79 GHz automotive radars.
Future-proof your investment with a modular solution that can be upgraded to add measurements, angles, and objects.
Leverage work across design, validation, and production to speed implementation by using a single tool chain and API.
The VRTS has the performance and scalability you need to meet complex validation test requirements and optimize automotive radar production tests. Explore our automated radar measurement and obstacle simulation capabilities for your ADAS system.
