Test solutions in a complex world: the 5th generation of radar systems is under development
With the new autonomous and accident-free driving vision, radar sensors together with other sensors such as Lidar, cameras and ultrasound are becoming a key technology for current and future advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Radar sensors are already being introduced in today’s vehicles in order to avoid critical situations and reduce the overall number of accidents.
The radar sensor is considered an essential pillar of road safety since it enables a detailed image of the surroundings, mainly independent of environmental influences. The 77/79 GHz frequency ranges with higher bandwidths (up to 4 GHz) feature increased range resolution of only a few centimeters. Today, fast chirps, which are more susceptible to interference than slow frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) signals, are used for better object recognition.
However, when ensuring driver assistance functions, multiple challenges arise. New legislation such as UN ECE R79 CAT C (for lane change assistant) and the radio equipment directive (RED) require improved quality assurance. The accuracy of mounting automotive radar systems in production lines and repair shops needs to be optimized as well. Additionally, hardware-in-the-loop testing of radar systems using moving target simulation will gain more importance in the future.
