Synthesis of radar raw data in traffic scenarios by ray tracing

In the field of mobility, the importance of intelligent driver assistance systems and autonomous vehicles will increase steadily in the future.

In the field of mobility, the importance of intelligent driver assistance systems and autonomous vehicles will increase steadily in the future. In order to be able to develop the systems required for this, the automotive industry is dependent on corresponding sensor technology that is capable of reliably recording the environment of a vehicle in real time and providing the system with relevant information about the dynamic traffic scene at the decision-making level. The use of radar sensors has decisive technological advantages over other environment sensors, since in addition to the weather-independent environment detection, information about movement and relative relative speeds of objects can be captured. Until now, radar sensors as well as decision-level algorithms have had to be validated with time-consuming test drives. As part of a research project, Fraunhofer FHR has developed a simulation method embedded in a software environment that can be used to synthesize raw radar data from a virtual traffic scene. Furthermore, a radar target simulator has been developed at FHR, with which the radar raw data can be played back to the radar sensors over-the-air after further processing to object lists.

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
