Testing Bumper Material for Installation of Automotive Radar Sensors

Automotive radar sensors are usually installed behind vehicle bumpers. In order for the sensors to function reliably, the bumper material and paint layers where they are installed must be sufficiently transparent and homogeneous. The R&S QAR automotive radome tester provides information about the RF characteristics of the bumper material at the push of a button. It enables users to optimize the material characteristics during development and verify them in production.
