Israeli company RadSee Technologies has released a 4D imaging radar for ADAS and autonomous vehicles, which it claims is able to deliver ultra-high performance and scalability to OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers at up to one third the cost of previous solutions.
By combining the company’s proprietary algorithms, antenna and system architecture with 77GHz commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components, RadSee says its system eliminates development risk as well as the usual trade-off between cost and performance.
The company highlights that its platform also scales to accommodate different autonomy levels – standard, premium and lidar-like – and is available for immediate integration into current ADAS design cycles as well as emerging autonomous vehicles.
“The automotive radar industry, poised to a market increase to above US$10bn by 2025, is eager for an innovative solution to make 4D imaging radar happen, but still the cost matters,” asserted Cédric Malaquin, technology and market analyst at Yole Développement.
“An approach combining cost effective off-the-shelf automotive grade components with cutting-edge performance, is likely to be a winning solution. At Yole, we track the many alternatives, analyze their strengths and drawbacks and deliver a comprehensive and accurate vision of this industry.”
Co-founder and CSO of the company 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.”
