Virtual Radar Sensor with Characteristic Properties

Case Study

Rain, glare or dirt – factors any driver is familiar with as interfering with the perception of the environment affect sensors as well. Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) have to cope with them and initiate vital actions in spite of faulty sensor data. To reproducibly validate this in virtual test driving, researchers from the Institute for Automotive Engineering of TU Graz together with Magna Steyr Engineering developed a radar sensor model that realistically simulates the sensor properties and can be used as early as in the concept stage. The model was comprehensively examined and tested using CarMaker.
