Automotive Radar Sensor Report

Publication Date: 11/05/2020

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 1.25 million people die each year from road crashes. Vehicular and pedestrian safety has become a key focus point for automotive OEMs and transport regulatory authorities. OEMs are supporting the “Road to Zero” project by offering standard and optional active safety and advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) features in their vehicles.

Sensing and perception technology would be a key enabler for ADAS and the automated driving system. Sensing technologies would enable a 360° safety cocoon around the vehicle, along with providing detection and object classification capabilities. Radar sensors have been a critical component of the ADAS and automated vehicle sensor suite much owing to its object detection and tracking capabilities in all weather and lighting conditions. They have also been critical in achieving the required sensor redundancy and reliability as required by automated driving systems.
