Automotive Radar Simulation with WaveFarer
Simulation technology has advanced to meet increasingly stringent design requirements for 24 GHz and 77 GHz automotive radar sensors. Visit Remcom’s booth to learn about our integrated approach from sensor design to drive test scenarios!
Electrostatic Discharge Testing in XFdtd
We’ll be previewing a number of new ESD simulation features coming soon in XFdtd. Engineers will be able to utilize ESD simulator waveforms, define the dielectric strength of materials, and easily locate weaknesses in their ESD design. These new features will provide ESD engineers with a valuable tool which can be utilized to optimize ESD protection during the design phase, thus reducing ESD failures during manufacturing and warranty claims after purchase. Stop by for a demo on the upcoming features!
Combining Physical Optics and Method of Equivalent Currents to Create Unique Near-field Propagation and Scattering Technique for Automotive Radar Applications
Monday, November 4 | 5:20 PM GMT |Room 4
The scattering environment for automotive radar is challenging for modeling and simulation, generating backscatter returns not just from vehicles but also from features in the environment. Remcom's WaveFarer® is a simulation tool that combines ray-tracing algorithms with high-frequency asymptotic physics methods. Its core is built around Physical Optics (PO) and the Method of Equivalent Currents (MEC), supplemented by Geometric Optics (GO) and the Uniform Theory of Diffraction (UTD) to handle multipath interactions between structures. In this paper, WaveFarer is used to evaluate radar returns from vehicles of different sizes. A drive scenario is then constructed with the radar and vehicle in motion, along with stationary roadside clutter. Simulation results are post-processed to calculate additional quantities, such as the range-Doppler. The objective of the study is to demonstrate the ability of simulation to characterize radar scattering from vehicles and features along a road, at ranges and frequencies relevant for automotive radar.
