Vayyar Imaging, a company that develops 4D radar imaging technology, has announced 60GHz automotive-grade MIMO radar-on-chip (ROC).
According to the company, the 60GHz solution offers the complete functionality of Vayyar’s leading 79GHz reference-design, enabling the automotive industry to meet global EU NCAP and US Hot-Car needs.
The solution displays the dimension, location, breathing pattern and movement of people, utilizing proprietary 4D point-cloud VOXEL imaging. This high-resolution, high-performance ROC claims to enable complete classification of the car’s environment, regardless of line-of-sight, bad lighting or harsh weather conditions, offering unparalleled in-cabin safety. See a short video of how it works here.
The solution aims providing manufacturers with a sensor that meets global regulatory requirements. The 60GHz solution offers manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers the same ROC functionality as the 79GHz one, thus providing full flexibility to start global mass-production preparations without the regulatory headache.
Vayyar’s automotive-grade radar-on-a-chip (ROC) has up to 48 transceivers and an internal DSP for real-time signal processing. The sensor is easily integrated into the existing automotive framework, and due to its multi-functionality, reduces the number of sensors needed as well as the amount of wiring required, providing more value while reducing the overall vehicle cost. For deployed vehicles, more functions can be added over time, with simple OTA software upgrades.
