Production-Ready Automotive Radar Test System


  • High-resolution testing and validation solution for automotive radars OTA
  • (Over-the-Air) testing performed on a shielded/anechoic environment
  • Multiple target simulation with control of specific parameters (RCS, distance, velocity, etc.)
  • Simultaneous characterization of the radar antenna’s radiation diagram
  • Robust connectors and modular fixturing for dozens of thousands of mating cycles


PARTS is a high-resolution test solution developed by CONTROLAR for testing automotive radars in the production line (EoL). It ensures automated pass/fail automotive radar validation for quality control and safety compliance.

PARTS is suitable for multimode radars (Longe-range, Medium-range and Short-range Radars) covering multiple frequency bands (24; 76-77; 77-81 GHz) and includes a 3D pan-tilt system for radar antenna’s radiation diagram and EIRP (Effective Isotropic Radiated Power) measurement.

Based on a semi-automatic process and high-quality fixturing for quick change over, it allows easy operation and product maneuvering by the user. This high-quality test solution can be integrated into automated factory production lines.

Product configuration

PARTS is an all-in-one solution composed of various blocks: 

  • Radar Target Generator (*)
  • Semi-automatic load/unload of radar Unit Under Test (UUT)
  • Anechoic and shielded chamber for testing and validation of radar
  • UUTs Baseline machine – main computer, HMI, PLCs for automation and motors control, electrical board, etc.

(*) Powered by R&S® AREG100A automotive radar echo generator

Main applications

PARTS is specifically suited for the Automotive industry for the functional testing of radar components.
