Vayyar imaging, a pioneer in 4D imaging sensors, has announced the world’s first 60 GHz automotive-grade MIMO radar-on-chip (RoC). The 60 GHz solution offers the complete functionality of Vayyar’s 79 GHz reference-design, enabling the automotive industry to meet global EU NCAP and US Hot-Car needs.
Vayyar’s solution displays the dimension, location, breathing pattern and movement of people, utilizing it’s proprietary 4D point-cloud VOXEL imaging. This high-resolution, high-performance RoC enables complete classification of the car’s environment, regardless of line-of-sight, bad lighting or harsh weather conditions, offering unparalleled in-cabin safety. Compared to other options, Vayyar’s radar-on-chip is far more advanced, robust, mature and cost-efficient to faster and more effective interior sensor implementation. The company’s comprehensive In-Car Evaluation Kit is available in both 60 GHz and 79 GHz versions, with the same software and performance.
Vayyar’s high-resolution, high-performance, low-cost solution is the first of its kind providing manufacturers with a sensor that meets global regulatory requirements. The 60 GHz solution offers manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers the same RoC functionality as the 79 GHz 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. Vayyar’s low cost 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.
Vayyar is the first to close the gap between the robustness of radars and the resolution of LiDAR and optics. The company’s solution is ready for mass production and deployment, having undergone intensive CPD and SBR test cases over the last year, with millions of test-samples, to ensure their reliability, accuracy and versatility.
