Autonomous vehicles are the ultimate future for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). For widespread acceptance, the cost of “seeing the road” must be considerably cheaper than it is in today’s limited production, high-end vehicles. The right cost will make a technology acceptable for many applications and wide range of vehicles. Targeting a cost of $250 […]
NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ:NXPI)has announced the next step in innovation for its market-leading automotive radar portfolio: the world’s smallest single-chip 77GHz radar transceiver (7.5×7.5 mm) with very high resolution performance. Radar is a core technology in existing and future Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), as it provides precise data about the surrounding driving environment, ultimately […]
At the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) 2015, held May 17-21 in Phoenix, AZ, Nao Motoyama, a Systems and Applications Engineer at Freescale Semiconductor, explained the capabilities of the MR2100, a recently introduced multi-channel 77 GHz radar transceiver chipset.

Today, from 60 to 100 different sensors can be found on the average new car. Some pundits estimate that twice that many will be there within the next five years. If this occurs, the global auto industry will consume some 22 billion sensors annually by 2020. Autonomous vehicles and subsets of self-driving cars are among […]
The Velodyne LiDAR division’s 360° HDL-32E LiDAR sensors measures Calibrated Reflectivity data. This data helps to localize license plates, street signs and lane markings within 2D pictures and surround video data for classification/cataloging during asset management and blurring of privacy information. The sensor has a compact footprint and an acquisition rate of ~700,000 data points […]
