Meet Evolving Automotive Radar Test Needs

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:

 

  • Taking parametric measurements and simulating radar obstacles for 77 GHz and 79 GHz with 1 GHz and 4 GHz bandwidths 
  • Performing repeatable, precise, and reliable testing to comply with OEM requirements for validation and production test 
  • Integrating handling, actuation, and an anechoic chamber with the simulation and measurement instrumentation

4 GHz Vehicle Radar Test System (VRTS)

  • 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.
