    Virtual validation of radar sensors for assisted and automated driving

    Virtual validation using artificial scenarios is “state-of-the-art” for camera technologies since several years. Continental already uses artificial scenarios for all camera developments including front-camera, SV camera and interior camera systems. This is empowered by high performance GPU clusters and the availability of very efficient raytracing rendering frameworks.

    For radar, virtual validation using artificial scenarios is still in research phase. We will share the current status from scenario generation using open interfaces such as OSI (Open Simulation Interface), Open Scenegraph, OpenDrive (HD maps) via raytracing rendering up to radar signal processing and tracking in virtual environments.
