Ensure Reliability of Driver Safety Systems
Test and Measurement Solutions for Automotive Applications
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) encompasses a broad range of products and services aimed at helping drivers drive more safely; while providing technologies that move vehicle development towards autonomous driving. Anritsu provides test and measurement equipment for ADAS services that make use of cellular, radar and DSRC.
Aiming to ensure safety and quick response times from emergency medical services in the event of a traffic accident, an emergency call (eCall) made automatically by the vehicle involved could save millions of lives. Anritsu can efficiently help meet the test and measurement requirements for eCall/ERA-GLONASS. Our solution, adopted and in use by Russian certification lab Polinom, offers an eCall tester based on a complete network simulator and a software tool simulating Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP).
Automotive radar technology is rapidly evolving as ADAS and Autonomous vehicle development drives demand for multiple, high resolution radars on each vehicle. Testing both radar capabilities and the interaction of multiple radars has never been more important. Anritsu provides equipment to help radar engineers validate performance of components throughout the R&D process.

In addition, adding the MSD ERA GLONASS Option MX703330E-031 supports ERA-GLONASS system tests of MSD data communications using SMS.
ME7838E Vector Network Analyzer
With the continued growth in 77 & 92 GHz automotive radar III-V development, it is expected that a major push for emerging SiGe development will continue. SiGe will offer lower costs and prices for the automotive industry and push car radar into mid to low price models.
VectorStar is used during the design phase where device characterization is used to analyze broadband performance of transistors and MMICs for radar systems and sub-systems.

MS2830A Spectrum Analyzer
The MS2830A uses a built-in vector signal generator to reproduce captured actual signals. These captured pulse signals and noise are analyzed using the flexible VSA function supporting Spectrum, Power vs. Time, and Frequency vs. Time displays. In addition, spectrum performance can be checked intuitively using the Spectrogram display showing frequency, time, and power on one screen to troubleshoot and develop car wireless equipment, such as RKE and TPMS, using FSK signals.
The characteristics of time-shifted signals, such as DSRC and IEEE 802.11p used for car-to-car and road-to-car communications, can be measured using analysis tools like MATLAB.
