Technical Education Webinar Series

Title: Overcoming Challenges in Automotive Radar Testing

Date: June 1, 2022

Time: 8am PT / 11am ET

Sponsored by: dSPACE

Presented by: Dr. Alexander Trapp, Product Engineer of Autonomous Driving Systems, dSPACE

Radar sensors are a key technology for the implementation of today’s driver assistance systems and automated driving functions. Due to the safety-critical nature of these systems, they must be thoroughly vetted with testing.

In this webinar, Dr. Alexander Trapp from dSPACE, will present an over-the-air approach for testing and validating radar sensors. This approach involves the use of radar target simulators (RTS), whereby the entire signal path of the radar – from the signal generation to the algorithm of the assistance system – is tested and validated. Options for testing radar sensors in all development phases, from chip design and sensor development to end-of-line tests and beyond will be addressed, including next generation, ultra-high resolution imaging radars, often referred to as 4D radars.

Webinar participants will learn:

  • Quick and easy methods for validating radar sensors
  • How to integrate radars into a test bench to realize complex, scenario-based, hardware-in-the-loop tests
  • How to integrate radars into a vehicle-in-the-loop test for testing driving functions

Presenter Bio:
Dr. Alexander Trapp is Product Engineer of Autonomous Driving Systems at dSPACE GmbH in Paderborn, Germany. He is part of the product management team for dSPACE Automotive Radar Test Systems (DARTS). In this role, he helps customers to validate radar sensors and functions for autonomous driving during development, production and in the field. Prior to joining dSPACE, Alexander was a Research Associate at Paderborn University, where he studied fabrication, processing and the characterization of low-dimensional semiconductor nanostructures. He earned a PhD in physics from Paderborn University and a MS in physics from The University of Göettingen.
