dSPACE Automotive Radar Test Systems (DARTS)

Over-the-air simulation of radar echoes in real time

The precise testing of radar sensors and applications is a critical requirement in development, production, quality assurance, and maintenance. The dSPACE Automotive Radar Test Systems (DARTS) enable easy-to-use but very realistic over-the-air tests. This is done by simulating radar echoes of objects in road traffic with programmable distance, speed, and size.

  • DARTS Receive 2020 AVT ACES Award

    The jury has found that the dSPACE Automotive Radar Test Systems (DARTS) drastically ease radar testing. They are convinced that the cutting-edge technology of DARTS gives users a leading edge in the fast validation and market introduction of automotive radar sensors.

    The panel of judges also recognized the high precision of the generated echoes, wide range coverage, and great versatility of the systems.

  • Multitarget Capability for DARTS

    A single DARTS-9030 can now simulate multiple independent radar echoes at the same time.

Powerful radar target simulators are available for any development and test tasks. They can be configured for use in E-band or K-band. Depending on the application and task, you can choose between scalable modules, desktop devices, and mobile devices. All DARTS are able to simulate radar echoes with the following characteristics: Distance (signal delay), speed (frequency shift, Doppler), and size (radar cross section).

  • Accurate over-the-air simulation of radar echoes in real time
  • Particularly realistic tests of ADAS/AD applications, sensors, and vehicles
  • Best-in-class range coverage, speed, and size simulation
  • Precise characterization and validation of all radar sensor types
  • Easy setup of the scalable systems for all ADAS/AD applications
  • An ideal choice for chip testing, R&D, end-of-line, and type approval
