ARTRAC has produced a video summarising the results of the project and presenting impressions from the final event. Best to be watched fullscreen.
ARTRAC has published the public description of the 24GHz automotive radar sensor developed in the project. This sensor is equipped with a new transmit/receive antenna which has a larger aperture and a multichannel receiver compared to conventional sensors.
ARTRAC has published a report on the various presentations of the demonstration vehicles of the project including the final event in Ehra.
As the project is coming to an end, the end results of ARTRAC were successfully presented in the proving ground of Volkswagen in Ehra near Wolfsburg on 26 September 2014. The team first presented the project results in short presentations but the highlight was the offer for participants to take test rides on the two demonstration cars.
Since November 1, 2011 the Advanced Radar Tracking and Classification for Enhanced Road Safety (ARTRAC) consortium has worked on developing a radar system to detect vulnerable road users as well as vehicles based on a single 24 GHz radar sensor. The functionality of the prototype will be demonstrated on compact class vehicles.
ARTRAC is inviting to a workshop in Hamburg focussing on the 24 GHz sensor technology used in the project.
Newsletter No.4 gives an interesting report on the work done in ARTRAC on the detection of road friction (ice, snow, water) by radar.
On 3 December 2013 a public workshop was held at TuTech Innovation, which gave an overview of the ARTRAC development for 38 participants.
In September 2013 the first sensor tests have been conducted with the ARTRAC sensor in operation. These tests took place in Volkswagen’s proving ground in Ehra, located close to Wolfsburg/ Germany the VW headquarters. This is a big progress step and milestone in the research and development activities.
The prototype of the ARTRAC radar sensor is operational now! First measurements under laboratory conditions have been performed. The radar sensor measures target range and radial velocity simultaneously even in dense and multiple target situations. The measurement results are shown in a matrix with different ranges and different radial velocities.
