RadSee launches high-performance 4D imaging radar

1 min read

RadSee Technologies is making available the automotive industry’s first 4D imaging radar for ADAS and autonomous vehicles that's capable of delivering ultra-high performance and scalability to OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers.

By combining the company’s algorithms and patented antenna and system architecture with 77GHz commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components, RadSee has been able to reduce development risks and strike a better balance between cost and performance.

The RadSee platform scales to accommodate different autonomy levels – standard, premium and LiDAR-like – that can be easily integrated, enabling widespread adoption. RadSee’s technology is available for immediate integration into current ADAS design cycles as well as emerging autonomous vehicles.

Features and benefits of the RadSee 4D automotive imaging radar include:

  • Scalable, portable and flexible for quick time-to-market
  • Processor-agnostic, automotive-grade COTS implementations (unlike competing ASIC approaches)
  • 400-meter range
  • Angular resolution of 0.25°
  • Static and dynamic object detection in a 120° field of view
  • Complete flexibility to fit into existing Tier 1 and OEM systems
  • Dramatically reduced development risks
  • Small form-factor architecture for easy and elegant design integration

As a key safety feature, automotive cameras alone are unreliable when driving conditions are dark or glaringly bright, or when the weather is bad, and LiDAR remains prohibitively expensive. Radar, however, is proven effective under any conditions using radio-frequency transmitters and receivers to accurately determine the shape, size, and movement of all objects in view, no matter the environmental conditions.

“With constant progress in ADAS, and direct feedback from key automotive industry players, the need for affordable, high-accuracy radars has never been greater,” said RadSee Co-founder and CEO, Arnon Afgin. “Our team focused on developing a radar solution that specifically addresses cost and risk – the key obstacles to widespread adoption by OEMs and Tier 1s.”

Co-founder and CSO Dr. Dani Raphaeli added, “Industry-leading performance has historically come with a high price tag plus significant development complexities and risks. In contrast, RadSee’s radar technology eliminates the usual trade-offs between cost, risk and performance, making widespread adoption of 77GHz radars a real possibility for the first time.”
