Beamsteering Imaging Radar

The Need for Advanced Analog Radar

Many of the safety requirements, as well as expectations for a smooth riding experience, facing the auto industry cannot be met using only today’s sensors, including current state-of-the-art digital beamforming (DBF), virtual arrays, or MIMO radars. Leading automakers need an innovative radar that provides longer range, high resolution, greater angular accuracy, object classification, and most importantly consistent stable performance in all weather and operating conditions. The radar of the future must be delivered today to give auto makers the technology required to deploy advanced features for safety and comfort. State of the art analog radar delivers critical features including next-generation adaptive cruise control, lane change assist, and automated emergency braking. Clearing remaining hurdles is a must for ensuring the highest levels of repeatable and dependable safety adherence while gaining long-term community acceptance.
