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).

New VNA technologies enable mmWave broadband testing to 220 GHz, helping researchers and engineers to overcome test challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

Application development in the mmWave frequencies is growing. Broadband testing over hundreds of GHz of bandwidth is subject to repeatability/accuracy deficits, and engineers demand solutions to help overcome challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

 

Automotive Evaluation Kit enables:

  • Breathing monitoring
  • Location monitoring and activity level indication
  • Emergency life detection in the case of an accident (including number of people and their status)
  • Passenger counting
  • Assisted parking and driving
  • Point cloud representation
  • Assisted parking and driving
  • Lane switch and blind spot detection
