Technology and Competence Center for the Characterization and Analysis of Power Electronic Systems – Laboratory for Characterization & Analysis of Power Electronic Applications – “Powerlyze-Lab”.

If we want to successfully advance the energy transition, one component is indispensable in the area of energy generation and use: power electronics. Regardless of whether energy is generated by photovoltaic or wind turbines or used in e-cars, e-scooters and pedelecs, or even at home in heat pumps a... Weiterlesen

Intelligent radar system by combination of additive manufacturing, hardware-integrated computer architecture and smart test routines

Der Wunsch nach hochautomatisiertem Fahren erfordert intelligente und vernetzte Fahrzeuge, welche mittels präziser Sensorik ihre Umgebung detailliert und zuverlässig erfassen können. Neben Kameras, Ultraschall- und Lidarsensoren sind Radarsensoren von großer Bedeutung im Automobil der Zukunft. Höchste Genauigkeit und Zuverlässigkeit, z.B. für die Radar basierten Umfelderkennung auf weite Entfernungen von über 200m, ist essentiell. Diese wird maßgeblich beeinflusst durch die Signalstreuung- und Dämpfung, Antennengüte und Auswerteelektronik sowie Algorithmen. Aufgrund dieser Einflüsse müssen als wesentliche Voraussetzung für präzise Erfassung Antenne, (Sekundär-)Radom (Sensorabdeckung) und Auswerteelektronik perfekt aufeinander abgestimmt  und als Gesamtsystem integriert sein. Dies schließt, um Test- und Auswertezeiten zu minimieren, auch neue Ansätze für die Funktionsprüfung durch den Einsatz Künstlicher Intelligenz für die Sensoralgorithmik und Sensortests mit ein.
