Combined with additional PXI modular instruments, the system can also simulate some of the most advanced sensor fusion environmental scenarios, combining GNSS, radar, cameras, and even lidar.
The VRTS simulates objects with:
Minimum obstacle range from about 4 m
Distance resolution of about 10 cm
Doppler speeds of up to +/- 250 km/hr
Custom scenario generation ranging from a pedestrian walking across the street to lane-change driving scenarios
And it supports a wide range of radar characterization measurements including:
Effective isotropic radiated power (EIRP)
With the VRTS, you can use the same measurement system for both software and hardware design validation and manufacturing test for the radar sensors.
“We can use the VRTS to configure the industry’s most advanced ADAS test systems to improve the safety and reliability of vehicles,” Konrad Technologies founder and CEO and cofounder of the ADAS Innovation in Test (IIT) Consortium Michael Konrad said. “The advanced synchronization capabilities of PXI combined with the ease of use of LabVIEW allows us to simulate even some of the most advanced sensor fusion environments combining GNSS, radar, cameras and even lidar.”
You can find our VRTS through select NI Alliance Partners with automotive radar expertise at ni.com/vrtspartners. Our Alliance Partners can configure advanced radar test systems either for automated production test, laboratory design validation, or software verification with HIL test applications.
