Perception radar solutions business Arbe Robotics’ chipset solution has been chosen by active safety Tier 1 Veoneer for the company’s next generation radars, following five years of research into radar chipset developers. The radars include a long-range, high-resolution radar with 48×48 RF channels and a 360° surround radar with 24×12 RF channels.
Under the new agreements, Veoneer will work with Arbe on the development of radars for automotive-grade safety and advanced driver assistance systems. By the middle of 2023, the next-generation radar is expected to be in pre-production.
To improve perception performance, Arbe’s patented imaging radar chipset – which includes a receiver, transmitter and processor chips – and Veoneer’s patented waveguide technology will be paired to deliver additional safety levels for Level 2+ and higher autonomy. Arbe’s chipset was chosen for its advanced and complete solution that includes receiver, transmitter, and processor chips.
