The following is an excerpt from the article:

In August of 2017, PARC (a Xerox company) spun off Metawave Corporation which builds technology solutions based on engineered metamaterials and Artificial Intelligence (AI).  Metawave is commercializing smart beamsteering antenna systems for autonomous vehicles and 5G markets. Leveraging machine learning and artificial intelligence, Metawave is building the first analog beamsteering radar system capable of distinguishing between objects close in proximity, and in difficult driving scenarios and in all-weather conditions, making cars safer and smarter. The company has been delivering its Proof of Concept to leading automakers and Tier 1 transportation providers since 2019.

It’s product, SPEKTRA, utilizes analog beam-forming and beamsteering with advanced digital signal processing techniques to deliver a low-cost solution that drives the evolution of highly automated driving and the deployment of advanced automated safety features, such as left turn assist, blind spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, traffic jam pilot, highway pilot, etc. The product enables 3D imaging, identification and classification of objects, non-line-of-sight object detection, and accident anticipation by analyzing traffic patterns, with smart functionality in all-weather conditions. These capabilities are needed for the future of automotive radar, which will make self-driving cars a reality. Metawave’s SPEKTRA™ can detect and classify vehicles beyond 350 meters and pedestrians beyond 200 meters which is farther than current products.
