The Institute of Microwave and Photonic Engineering is one of 5 institutes of Graz University of Technology participating in the Ecsel JU project ENABLE-S3. Overall there are 71 partners from 16 member states of the EU led by AVL List GmbH. The duration will be 3 years.
ENABLE-S3 is industry-driven project and aspires to substitute today’s cost-intensive validation and verification efforts by virtual and semi-virtual testing and verification, coverage-oriented test selection methods and standardization to pave the way for efficient development of highly automated and autonomous systems (ACPS).
13 use-cases in the domains automotive, aerospace, farming, health maritime and rail will be covered in the project.
In cooperation with the Institute of Automation and Control of Graz University of Technology (IRT) the radar-target-stimulator for automotive radars developed within in the project GAZELE is going to be extended to allow the emulated movement of targets also in cross-range (azimuth) direction.
That is necessary in order to create a simulated "radar-environment" that stimulats driver assistance system similar to the way that the real environment does. In this way testing and validation can be done on a testbed allowing to save thousands of kilometers on real roads.
The correct operation of the radar target stimulator could be demonstrated with the radar of a real vehicle on a roller chassis dynamometer at AVL.
