Test Your ADAS Sensors from Characterization to Production

Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) rely on sensors to meet safety standards. These sensors, including ultrasonic, lidar, radar, and camera, usually require multiple, fragmented test technologies from validation to production. A unified, modular toolchain designed for interoperability, with sensor and signal compatibility in mind, and best-in-class I/O, streamlines test development to meet automotive market volume and certification requirements, such as:


  • Meeting launch dates, time-to-market and test-budget expectations without sacrificing test coverage, compliance, or throughput

  • Adapting to ADAS sensor technology changes, such as constantly evolving camera serializing protocols or larger-bandwidth radars

  • Generating high-fidelity virtual sensors, monitoring physical sensor data and performance, and detecting and injecting data-stream faults

  • Effectively testing all sensor domains—such as electrical, optical, and over-the-air—with minimum test-setting alterations

  • Gathering data at every stage to perform analytics to help make test strategy decisions


NI ADAS Sensor Test Solutions

  • NI PXI modules stimulate different ADAS sensors to test, such as radar object emulation or camera virtual scenario projection
  • With a wide variety of I/O, low latency, and tight synchronization, the PXI system can perform raw sensor data injection and data-sniffing directly from the sensor
  • Automotive communication modules facilitate object-list-level communication from the ADAS electronic control unit to further validate sensor performance
  • The NI software-connected system provides all tools to run test execution, data management, and sensor level interfacing and fault injection
