Radar for Connected Cars - ADAS Sensors
« on: December 22, 2014, 02:04:10 PM »
Like any automotive-grade application, the recipe for success in ADASrequires best-in-class performance, minimal errors, a long lifespan, a lowest cost solution and lightweight/compact packaging.

Radars (Radio Angle Detection and Ranging) uses emitted microwaves and reflected signals to detect objects. Automotive radars are typically classified by their range—long-range 77GHz and short-range 24GHz. During the initial onset of ADAS in the early-2000s, radar was a natural first choice sensor because of its ability to detect metal objects in a manner that’s unaffected by weather. As a result, radar has been used extensively in side-facing applications like blind spot warnings where detection of metal objects in varying weather conditions accomplishes the mission

Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), electronic stability control systems, braking systems and other active/passive safety systems are increasingly encouraged by regulators in Europe and the US. Auto safety technology has high barriers to entry due to cross-sector hardware/software integration demands and is very much in a growth stage. Nevertheless, auto electronics companies from Greater China could potentially tap into the market opportunities by forming JVs with international OEMs in China, or focusing on specific components in the auto safety value chain, such as auto cameras, smart airbags, sensors and radars
