Virtual Drive Testing For ADAS Radar Sensors And Communication Antennas

This webinar will show how WinProp considers the full environment including buildings, cars, street objects in order to get accurate representations of the radio waves impinging on the installed car antennas and the multipath radar channels including reflections, diffractions, and scattered contributions. For efficient analysis, the car objects can also be replaced by their corresponding radar cross sections pre-calculated in Altair Feko™.
