The vehicle radar test system from Konrad is one tester for radar sensor RF measurements and object simulation built on National Instruments VRTS technology.
The system leverages NI‘s mmWave products with the NI PXIe-5840 Vector Signal Transceiver (VST) and NI-5692 Variable Delay Generator (VDG) to advance methods for sensor production and validation test. It also offers the ability to simulate complex automotive scenarios in the lab environment and is ready for Hardware-in-the-Loop(HIL) integration, making radar sensor testing possible in a controlled and reproducible test frame.
With the Konrad Radar T&M Suite, users are able to validate backend sensor algorithms. This can range from checking the behavior of simple Adaptive Cruise Control functions to verifying that emergency situations are handled appropriately. Konrad Technologies can draw upon a vast background of experience in order to support custom applications.
The software makes testing complex driving scenarios easy with the simple graphical editor. Users can draw their desired scenario and edit individual parameters such as RCS or speed via the property view. The scenarios can then be replayed or saved to disk for later retrieval.
