dSPACE partners with miro·sys and ITS on comprehensive radar test family
Autonomous Vehicle Technology announces 2020 ACES Award Winner in Autonomy | Sensors Category
Better radar is on every safety-system engineer’s radar, focusing on higher performance and resolution and lower costs. That is behind a leading dSPACE partnership with miro·sys and Innovative Technical Systems (ITS), which both specialize in the development of test systems for radar sensors that simulate radar echoes over the air. Automotive radar sensors are a key technology that facilitate ever more advanced driver assistance functions and autonomous driving because radars can determine the speed and distance of objects in real time and in extreme weather conditions. dSPACE will distribute these systems internationally, integrate them into its own product range, and will work with the companies on development and intellectual property. The new dSPACE Automotive Radar Test Systems (DARTS) product family includes products for the entire value chain, from testing radar sensors in chip production, hardware-in-the-loop validation, to end-of-line testing of vehicles by automakers. These new products will also be used in homologation and the aftermarket. Key features of the miro·sys and ITS systems are precisely generated echoes, coverage of long distances, and great versatility—the cutting-edge technology giving users a leading edge in the fast validation and market introduction of automotive radar sensors. The product family consists of applications ranging from mobile handheld devices to systems for the laboratory bench and rack systems. The range is supplemented by solutions for standalone operation or complex radar test systems that can be used with other simulators and test automation in closed-loop operation. All instruments are modular, scalable, and configurable through software for parameters such as the number of echoes, detection ranges, target sizes, and Doppler frequencies.
