ATRIUM: A Radar Target Simulator for Complex Traffic Scenarios
Future autonomous automobiles will require extremely reliable radar sensors to guarantee the safety of road users. This requires test environments to verify that automotive radars work properly even in complex traffic situations. Radar target simulators can generate virtual scattering centers in front of the radar sensor and are therefore a promising verification technique. However, currently available systems only offer a very basic approach to manipulating scattering centers. With the workflow presented in this publication it becomes possible to decompose high-level descriptions of traffic scenarios into parameters required for radar target simulation. The workflow can therefore be used to generate realistic traffic scenarios and thus increases the reliability of automotive radar sensor tests.
