EM Simulation Of Automotive Radar Mounted In Vehicle Bumper
By Remcom
Trends in automobile safety are pushing radar systems to higher levels of accuracy and reliability. Consequently, it is imperative that engineers understand how mounting brackets, fascia, paint color, and bumper assemblies affect automotive radar systems. In this paper, a 24 GHz sensor is used to discuss the differences between a simulation of a stand-alone sensor and one that is mounted in a vehicle.
