Vayyar 4D Imaging Radar Sensor Set To Revolutionise Automotive Safety By Cutting Complexity And Costs
TEL AVIV, Israel, Dec. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Overcrowded with sensors – average cars forecast to have over 200 by 2030
- Vayyar platform addresses multiple challenging safety requirements, providing 
unprecedented life-saving functionality for all car models (view the technology 
here []).

- Single multifunctional radar-on-chip (ROC) able to replace numerous 
traditional one-function sensors, reducing complexity for both in-cabin and 
ADAS applications.

- Leading-edge technology minimizes risk and integration costs, and is set to 
save car manufacturers and suppliers hundreds of millions of dollars each year. 

- Vayyar's in-cabin 4D imaging radar sensor provides exceptional resolution and 
an ultra-wide field of view for precise classification of complete vehicle 

- Production-ready, affordable and scalable solution, proven to automotive 
grade, supports addition of future safety features via over-the-air (OTA) 
software upgrades.

f3a23b-e9a2-450d-90e7-f2919cd3cef3], the global leader in 4D imaging radar 
technology, is transforming automotive safety with its production-ready 
Radar-on-Chip (RoC) platform, which enables OEMs to achieve leading-edge 
vehicle safety while achieving unprecedented cost efficiencies.

Vayyar's automotive-grade, AEC-Q100 qualified RoC is a game-changing solution. 
The chip features up to 48 transceivers, an internal digital signal processor 
(DSP) and microcontroller unit (MCU) for real-time signal processing. Capable 
of seeing through objects and able to operate effectively in all weather 
conditions, Vayyar's single-chip solution can replace over a dozen other 
sensors and negates the need for expensive LIDAR and cameras.

Within the cabin, one multifunctional Vayyar chip can support a multitude of 
systems, including intruder alerts, Child Presence Detection, enhanced Seat 
Belt Reminders and eCall to alert emergency services in the event of a crash. 
It delivers a revolutionary level of safety, utterly unobtainable with 
traditional single-function sensors.

This breakthrough solution fulfils the functions of multiple chips by sensing, 
computing, processing, mapping and imaging targets with just a single 
radio-frequency integrated circuit (RFIC). The platform supports Vayyar's 
mission to ensure that safety is available and affordable for all car 
manufacturers and their key suppliers, at a time when modern cars are becoming 
increasingly crowded with sensors. 

Today, there are more than 100 sensors in a typical car, with analysts 
predicting that this will double by 2030. However, Vayyar's new 
production-ready RoC offers unprecedented potential and a unique opportunity to 
cut cost and complexity while improving safety.

"By replacing multiple sensors with our multifunctional, scalable platform, the 
possibilities for simplicity and savings are substantial. In addition, 
regulations and standards are rising and to achieve 5-star ratings, automakers 
are moving away from traditional solutions," explains Ian Podkamien, Head of 
Automotive at Vayyar. "Our multi-award winning technology, recognised by 
organisations such as CLEPA 
[], equips 
vehicles with the instincts to save lives, providing uncompromising and 
affordable safety. What's more, its price point is similar to a single-function 
3x4 2D/3D radar solution, but with substantial added value." 

The platform provides exceptionally high resolution and an extremely wide field 
of view to deliver unsurpassed precision and detail. The robust sensor is also 
engineered for scalability, seamlessly facilitating the deployment of emerging 
features via over-the-air (OTA) software updates. This effectively 
future-proofs vehicles as new safety requirements and standards emerge.

Central to the platform's potential is its ability to reduce complexity, in 
order to cut direct and indirect costs. Vayyar has the in-house expertise to 
deliver a full end-to-end solution, including hardware, software, development 
and testing resources, streamlining the integration process for Tier 1 
suppliers and OEMs to minimise effort, costs and risk. 

By providing a high-performance, cost-effective and multifunctional sensor, 
Vayyar's technology closes the gap between rising safety demands and feasible 
tech adoption, ensuring that affordable, uncompromising safety is available to

About Vayyar Imaging (Automotive)

Vayyar's intelligent sensors create holistic safety opportunities for in-cabin 
and ADAS, using automotive-grade 4D imaging radar technology. At the core of 
these sensors is a high-performance Radar-on-Chip that supports up to 48 
transceivers for exceptional resolution. With an ultra-wide field of view, 
Vayyar's 60GHz and 79GHz single-chip radar modules cover large areas to reduce 
the number of sensors in vehicles. They provide comprehensive detection in and 
around the vehicle, while simultaneously tracking multiple targets and objects. 
Vayyar technology is multi-functional, affordable and available for mass 
production. The radar-based platform is robust in all road conditions, while 
protecting user privacy. Vayyar plans to continue developing the next 
generation of sensor technology that is miniature, affordable and versatile 
enough to enable a safer world.

Editor's notes 

Unlike traditional radar solutions that are based around 2 to 3 transmitting 
antennas and 3 to 4 receiving antennas, 4D imaging radar leverages a Multiple 
Input Multiple Output 48-antenna array for high-resolution mapping of its 
surroundings. The rich point cloud data output combined with an ultra-wide 
azimuth-elevation field of view, delivers detection and tracking with pinpoint 
accuracy, making it the ultimate safety sensor for the road ahead.
