As advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles become more popular, they also raise concerns about safety and reliability. Autonomous vehicles rely on state-of-the-art sensor technology with highly integrated radar. According to the US Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), autonomous vehicles need up to 24 of these radar sensors. Interference between the sensors can significantly impair the reliability of the vehicle radar. Even a slight error or unexpected malfunction in the system can lead to a critical situation or an accident.
The new version of Keysight's E8740A radar signal analysis and emulation solution for automotive applications is based on powerful physical-level instruments that provide world-class RF and mmWave performance testing for each radar design under test, as well as an easy-to-use, intuitive user interface for maximum productivity. This comprehensive testing solution also creates various real-world conditions to solve potential problems with automotive radar interference.
The new Keysight automotive radar signal analysis and generation solution E8740A offers:
- Powerful tools for creating interference test sequences and physical-level test plans for vehicle radar based on Keysight's PathWave software platform.
- Flexible generation of broadband mm wave and other signals (frequency-modulated continuous wave, continuous wave, orthogonal frequency division multiplexing and coded modulation).
- Predefined test setup for radar standards in the automotive sector.
