C1.1 - A New Concept for Aligning Automotive Long-Range Radar Modules Based on Wireless Microwave Sensing

R. Weigel, G. Vinci, B. Laemmle & A. Koelpin
A rising number of modern automobiles are equipped with long-, mid- or short-range radar distance sensors. Especially long-range radar based driving assistance systems operating at 77 GHz get more and more into focus to enhance traffic safety. Especially for these long range modules the adjustment of the sensors exactly in parallel to the thrust vector of the vehicle has to be done in an extremely small range of tolerances. If the misalignment angle exceeds +/-0.5°...
