Bangalore – Uhnder, the leader in digital imaging radar technology for next-generation automotive and mobility applications, will soon become the first company to mass-produce a fully qualified automotive 4D digital imaging radar on chip that will transform our roads, enabling next-generation ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems), autonomous vehicles (AVs) and automated mobility applications.
“Uhnder’s 4D digital imaging radar on chip is a next-generation product that demonstrates new ways to advance automotive safety to save lives,” said Douglas Campbell, President of the Automotive Safety Council. “Vulnerable road user fatalities now account for 20 percent of all road fatalities in the United States and even more in developing countries. ADAS technologies, such as Automatic Pedestrian Emergency Braking (P -AEB) that can operate reliably at night, can help reduce pedestrian fatalities according to the latest report from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Improved high-resolution perception sensors, such as on-chip radar of Uhnder, can potentially help reduce this category of rising deaths.
Uhnder’s technology offers the industry’s first digital radar solution with improved accuracy and the ability to detect moving or standing objects, large or small, at short and long ranges, in all weather and conditions. lighting, while mitigating mutual interference between other radars. Uhnder’s digital radar can clearly identify a pedestrian crossing the road, a child entering the street next to a parked car, or a cyclist next to a guardrail, at levels of accuracy than analog radar systems traditional can not achieve.
“Digital radar delivers 16x better resolution, 24x more on-target power and 30x more contrast than today’s analog offerings, improving detection capabilities for better road safety for all users – drivers, passengers, cyclists and pedestrians,” said Manju Hegde. , CEO and Co-Founder, Uhnder, Inc. “As more and more radars are fitted to vehicles and other mobility solutions, interference between adjacent radars becomes a problem. Our radar, based on digital code modulation, alleviates this problem.
Automotive Qualification Milestones
In April 2022, Uhnder will launch its S80 on-chip radar into mass production. The device will be the first 4D digital imaging radar solution and will meet stringent automotive requirements:
Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) Q104 qualification
ISO 26262 Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL-B)
Production Parts Approval Process (PPAP) with its first Tier 1 automotive customer, Magna
Once these steps have been taken, the automotive industry will take another step towards improving road safety for all.
“Uhnder is a leader in digital imaging radar and a trusted partner in advancing the best innovations,” said Swamy Kotagiri, CEO of Magna International. “I am excited about the progress made over the years and ready for the entire ecosystem to experience what we already know to be true – that digital radar is fundamental to next-generation ADAS. “
Uhnder’s digital radar hits the road in 2022
Uhnder’s on-chip radar, used in Magna’s ICON digital radar, will debut on vehicles in 2022
