Realistic radar reflections for validation of ADAS/AD functions
There are numerous examples of ADAS failing on production vehicles in real road situations, whether due to challenging weather conditions, incomplete scenario testing, or even unimagined situations. Model-in-the-loop (MIL) and software-in-the-loop (SIL) fulfill important parts of the design cycle, but when systems reach the hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) stage, realistic simulation of radar sensors in 3D dynamic environments is non-existent. Or has been. We present a new approach to provide a realistic reflection environment, including things like ground clutter, guard rail and overpass returns with independent motion and reflection characteristics.
