4D imaging radar on a chip

1 min read

RFISee, a developer of imaging radars for the automotive industry, has unveiled a Phased Array 4D imaging radar on a chip.

The all weather radar has proven its ability to detect cars from 500m and pedestrians from 200m, with an angular resolution greater than 1 degree.

Prototypes of RFISee's radar are under evaluation by top automotive OEMs and Tier-1s.

RFISee's patented 4D imaging radar uses a powerful focused beam based on proprietary Phased Array radar technology. The focused beam created by dozens of transmitters rapidly scans the field of view. The receivers ensure a much-improved radar image, a better signal to noise ratio, and a detection range of obstacles such as cars and pedestrians that is six times broader when compared to existing radars.

The radar technology is also capable of dealing with bi-directional traffic, the detection of multiple pedestrians, recognising bike riders on the shoulder of the road, Automatic Emergency Braking for trucks and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) on highways.

According to Yole Research, the global automotive radar market will reach $8.6 billion in 2025, which represents a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of around 16% between 2015 and 2025.

Moshe Meyassed, CEO of RFISee, said: “Today’s automotive radars typically provide low resolution and limited detection range. Our ability to combine long range, high resolution and superior accuracy can be the key for the high-quality sensor fusion between the camera and the radar that the automotive industry is looking for.

“The sensor fusion that RFISee is introducing will open new frontiers for adding effective AI layers to the fused radar and the camera data. As a result, car manufacturers and drivers alike will benefit from crucial improvements in safety and accident prevention, effective operation in low visibility and increased automation in vehicles.”
