Konrad Technologies has been named an NI RF and Wireless Specialty Alliance Partner. The company received this designation for its specialised skills in RF and wireless test capabilities, demonstrated by their Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) radar test solutions and RF communications test capabilities.

Konrad’s ADAS solution for testing the autonomous vehicle can efficiently test sensors in real time with one scalable system.

For example, the RF software for radar sensor test, developed by Konrad Technologies, leverages NI mmWave products for ADAS test. Verification of hardware and software for new radar sensors is performed with RF measurements and target generation. The sensors are tested through a variety of automotive driving scenes in a simulated environment.

This ADAS test technology aids users by giving them the ability to simulate complex automotive scenarios from the lab, eliminating the disadvantages of real-world test drives.

Users are able to quickly and efficiently cover test requirements for a safe autonomous vehicle and speed time to market. Sensor fusion testing by Konrad Technologies, offers a unique approach for testing multiple automotive sensors.

The scalable solution joins sensor fusion with Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) to create an innovative automated test system for the automotive industry.

“The expertise of our RF and Wireless Specialty Alliance Partners is key to NI’s strategy for ensuring customer success,” stated Tony Vento, NI Vice President of Partners. “Konrad’s knowledge in testing autonomous vehicles and outstanding track record delivering test solutions in general enables our customers to keep pace with rapidly changing technologies and consumer expectations.”

Even greater confidence in ADAS test is possible with the ADASiiT partnership. ADAS iiT offers HIL, V2V, V2X, GNSS, big data management, radar, camera and Lidar sensor testing based on NI platforms.

As industry and home automation test demands increase, Konrad Technologies will offer RF and wireless test solutions that adapt and expand with user needs.

RF expertise in wireless test for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Bluetooth LE is delivered via Konrad’s RFCT 2400A, an all-in-one low-cost system offering signalling and non-signalling connections, based on NI software defined radios, making it ideal for IoT companies.

The calibrated wireless test system is fully controllable with LabVIEW and the API can be used together with most of NI’s versatile software packages, such as the Bluetooth Analysis and Generation Toolkit, Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Toolkit and many others.
