Test and measurement solutions for the automotive industry

Driving tomorrow's mobility

Automotive test solutions

Autonomous driving promises users exceptional mobility and travel comfort, as well as encouraging OEMs and Tier 1s to achieve the anticipated "vision zero", the EU target of no traffic fatalities by 2050. However, their success holds a major prerequisite: diverse automotive components and functions need to be coordinated and interact without errors. Managing increasingly complex electronic systems and industry standards such as automotive Ethernet create additional requirements for automotive testing, alongside security issues. Such challenges would be unmanageable without the introduction of innovative automotive test solutions that support the transfer of road tests to the test rig for reproducibility as well as test automation.

Our solutions for all trends in the automotive industry

Advanced driver assistant systems (ADAS) will play an increasingly important role in making driving safer and more comfortable. Such systems can save lives, but a slight error can result in an incorrect assessment of the situation. Due to the complexity of the different technologies being used, including radar, automotive connectivity, V2X communications and emergency call, comprehensive automotive testing is necessary to ensure correct functionality and maximum safety. We offer test solutions from R&D to production that combine high reliability with class-leading performance, ensuring that Rohde & Schwarz is your trusted partner.

Dr. Sherif Ahmed, Principial Microwave Imaging & Systems, Rohde & Schwarz

"Radomes and coatings on bumpers can influence the quality of radar signals. The R&S®QAR, our latest development based on a millimeterwave array, allows manufacturers to examine these influences using spatially resolved analysis. It only takes a few seconds to analyze the reflection, homogeneity and attenuation of the material. This allows us to ensure stable radar performance with high angle measurement accuracy, even over large distances."
