Arbe, a global leader in next-generation 4D Imaging Radar Solutions, announced that AutoX has chosen its 4D Imaging Radar Platform for their Level 4 autonomous vehicles, RoboTaxis, as well as other autonomous driving projects. Arbe recently revealed plans to go public through a SPAC merger with Industrial Tech Acquisitions, at equity value of approximately $723M, merger conditions discussed below.
Over the next five years, AutoX is expected to integrate 400,000 Arbe-based ultra-high resolution radar systems in their Level 4 fleet. Multiple radar units will be included as an integral component of the sensor suite for safety application development, AI-based perception algorithms, and sensor fusion.
“We are pleased to be working with AutoX – the RoboTaxi player in China and one of the most innovative automotive companies in the world as demonstrated by the fact that they were granted a permit in California to begin driverless testing – to achieve high standards of safety and performance at an ambitious pace,” says Kobi Marenko, CEO of Arbe. “AutoX has continuously proven to be a leader in the China market, taking the first steps in autonomous vehicle advancement. Our partnership is another testimony to the company’s forward-thinking nature.”
AutoX chose to partner with Arbe because their platform enables advanced safety and sensor performance at an attractive price point. As part of the agreement, Arbe will provide AutoX with the entire Arbe Imaging Radar platform, which enables an image 100 times more detailed than any radar on the market, via a proprietary technology with 2K resolution, the highest channel count in the industry.
“We are excited to integrate Arbe’s technology in our Level 4 RoboTaxi fleet and are confident that their radar solution will greatly enhance the safety of our vehicles,” says David Liu, senior perception engineer at AutoX. “Arbe provides the most advanced 4D radar solution on the market. We will be able to leverage the high resolution and advanced processing power with low latency of Arbe’s product for our RoboTaxis operating in China, home to some of the world’s most challenging and dense urban scenarios.”
Arbe is revolutionizing radar by bridging the sensor gap and addressing the core issues that have caused recent autonomous vehicle and autopilot accidents such as detecting stationary objects, identifying vulnerable road users, and eliminating false alarms without radar ambiguities. Arbe’s 4D imaging radar is a unique platform that provides ultra-high resolution in any weather or lighting condition.
“The Arbe-AutoX partnership will transform the level of safety for L4 vehicles, elevating the standards of safety and the path for the entire industry,” says Roman Levi, VP of Sales and General Manager of Arbe APAC.
