Sensor Kit Bridges The LiDAR/Radar Gap

Vayyar Imaging’s Automotive Evaluation Kit (EVK) is said to represent a significant leap forward in the application of radar technology. The kit delivers an advanced System on a Chip (SOC) for mmWave 3D imaging and brings point cloud technology to radar, increasing radar’s resolution and capabilities, while reducing costs and minimizing the need for other sensors within the vehicle.


The automotive sensor kit includes Vayyar’s 77-81Ghz ASIC, including 48 transceivers on a chip with internal DSP. It includes an array of antennas and a USB interface. The company’s sensors promise to reduce the overall cost and number of sensors needed for the vehicle, resulting in a better driving experience and increasing the possibilities for in-car sensor capabilities for tier 1 customers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
