Imaging Radar Chip Enables High-Res 4D Point Cloud For Auto Apps

Vayyar has launched what it is calling the first automotive 4D point cloud application on a single radar chip. The device transforms radar technology by constructing a real-time, high-resolution 4D visualization of both in-cabin and car exterior environments. The single chip with point cloud displays the dimension, shape, location and movement of people and objects, enabling the complete classification of the car’s environment, regardless of bad lighting or harsh weather conditions.

In-cabin solutions include seatbelt reminders, optimized airbag deployment, gesture control, driver drowsiness alerts, and infant detection alarms, even if the infant is covered by a blanket or hidden in a car seat or in the foot well. The exterior solutions map and classify the car’s surroundings to enable enhanced parking assistance, blind spot detection, lane switching assistance, automatic speed and distance control, and alerts for height obstacles, obstructions and more.

Vayyar’s Radar on a Chip (ROC) has 48 transceivers at 76 to 81GHz, which allows over 2,000 virtual channels. The chip also consists of an internal DSP for real-time signal processing. For deeper details, visit Vayyar Imaging.
