Webinar: High-end calibration of next-generation radar sensors

The development of new ADAS functions with key sensors, which are unaffected by the weather or the light, demands the highest speeds and the utmost precision to guarantee its reliable function at any time. Next generations of radar sensors will reach higher frequency bands up to 80 GHz, and in order to reliably ensure 360° surround 3D object recognition, automotive industry will require a rising number of radar sensors (LRR, MRR, SRR) and antennas (TX/RX) with a much higher resolution, working seamlessly together.

Within the R&D phase, the measurements of far-field automotive radars is a challenge as it requires a large spatial distance, has a high loss path, while providing a relatively small quiet zone, and where even a slight misalignment has a huge impact on repeatable measurements.

However, the newest generation of the Rohde & Schwarz CATR reflector chamber can overcome these test measurement challenges.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Learn about the possible ways of performing these tests in a lab environment, speeding up and enabling your research and development processes.
  • Get a quick review of the basics of automotive radar sensors and their role within ADAS functions.
  • Understand the potential of new modulation schemes, such as PMCW of the UHNDER’s 4D radar-on-chip.
  • See a live demo calibration of a high-end radar-on-chip (RoC) with the R&S®ATS1500C test chamber and the interpretation of the measurements.
