Imaging Systems Technology (IST) has designed End of Line (EOL) test systems for a wide range of the industry leading radar sensors including Autoliv, Hella and Continental. These makers supply their sensors to automotive manufacturers including FIAT/Chrysler, GM, Chevrolet, Cadillac, Ford, Volvo, Daimler, Honda, BMW, Nissan and Kia.
The Short Range Radar (SRR) sensors use radar technology at 24 GHz to detect objects in front of or surrounding the vehicle. These radar sensors are used alone or in conjunction with Side Blind Zone Alert (SBZA) sensors for collision avoidance/mitigation systems. SRR sensors are also used in adaptive cruise control (ACC) systems to monitor the distance between vehicles and adjust the speed accordingly.
What We Do
The IST Short Range Radar Sensor Test System is designed to test harness continuity as well as sensor functionality, part revision, software revision, serial number and communications. Our engineers have experience with a range of communication protocols used in the automotive industry such as KWP (Key Word Protocol), CAN (Controller Area Network) and LIN (Local Interconnect Network). IST’s electrical and mechanical engineers can aid you in designing and implementing a complete testing and tracking system for your Short Range Radar (SRR) sensors. Our engineers have created End of Line (EOL) test systems for the most widely used SRR sensors in the automotive industry, which are made by Autoliv. These sensors are used by OEM automotive manufacturers world wide including FIAT/Chrysler, GM, Ford, Volvo, Daimler, Honda, BMW, Nissan and Kia. Our engineers have experience with a range of communication protocols used in the automotive industry such as KWP (Key Word Protocol), CAN (Controller Area Network) and LIN (Local Interconnect Network).
Easy To Use
The IST Short Range Radar Sensor Test System can easily be configured to account for sensor hardware and software revisions. Using the parts configuration masking feature of IST’s EOL Test Software the system can test harnesses with differing numbers of sensors and lamps.
The IST EOL SRR Test Software saves all sensor revision data and communications status messages for each test that is run. Using the built in database features available in the IST EOL Test Software, any part that has been tested, can be viewed and verified.
