- Over-the-Air Testing
Precise testing is a critical requirement in the development, production, quality assurance and maintenance of radar sensors and applications. dSPACE Automotive Radar Test Systems (DARTS) enable easy-to-use and very realistic over-the-air tests. This is done by simulating radar echoes of objects in road traffic with programmable distance, speed, and size with unique signal integrity. DARTS play a decisive role in the validation of radar-based driver assistance systems and autonomous vehicles throughout the entire value chain. Powerful devices are available for use in development and testing in the laboratory, for end-of-line tests during production, for the homologation of a vehicle, and for the aftermarket. The newest addition to the DARTS product family is DARTS 9040-G -- the first target simulator in the market capable of processing up to 5 GHz radar signals. 9040-G is designed and optimized for all next-gen automotive radars (e.g., imaging radars, 4D radars). It features reference-grade simulation for R&D and end-of-line testing and easy, intuitive handling. DARTS are very compact in size and feature the smallest RF frontend in the world providing unique signal integrity.
