Ultra-high-resolution imaging radars, often referred to as 4-D radars, provide detailed images of the radar’s surroundings with a wide field of view as well as elevation, distance, and speed information. Tests of these radar sensors place high demands on the capabilities and bandwidth of the radar target simulator (RTS) used. The dSPACE Automotive Radar Test System (DARTS) 9040-G is the first RTS to successfully meet these challenges with powerful radio frequency technology.
DARTS 9040 was named product of the year
The dSPACE Automotive Radar Test System (DARTS) 9040-G is an industry-proven radar target simulator for testing radar sensors used in civilian vehicles. Its true 5 GHz bandwidth lets you simulate radar targets for particularly demanding automotive E-band radar sensors. Moreover, it is designed and optimized for all next-generation automotive radars, such as imaging and 4-D radars. Due to its convenient over-the-air approach, the system can be used in all major development phases, from chip design to sensor development and end-of-line testing. It is ideal for testing entire advanced driver assistance systems and autonomous vehicles. The tests can be performed during development, production, quality assurance, and approval.
The new DARTS 9040-G is available in different variants for EOL testing. The individual variants are tailored to different requirements in EOL test applications. If you have any questions, dSPACE will be happy to provide more detailed information.
The DARTS 9040-G uses technology that considerably simplifies the work process. For example, it is designed to instantly cover the entire 77 GHz radar band – without any synthesizer tuning. It can also stimulate short- and long-range radars without changing the center frequency.
The DARTS 9040-G is optimized for developing complex next-generation radars. It features:
Accurate and flexible testing of automotive radar applications has never been easier. The convenient over-the-air method achieves an unmatched test depth and test coverage – supporting all development phases from chip design to vehicle end-of-line testing.
