the global leader in 4D imaging technology, today announced the launch
of the first automotive 4D point cloud application on a single radar
chip. 4D point cloud transforms radar technology by constructing a
real-time, high-resolution 4D visualization of both in-cabin and car
This press release features multimedia. View the full release here:
Vayyar’s low-cost, high-performance single chip with point cloud
displays the dimension, shape, location and movement of people and
objects, enabling the complete classification of the car’s environment,
regardless of bad lighting or harsh weather conditions. Click here
to see how point cloud technology works.
Vayyar’s point cloud creates a new opportunity for a holistic solution
maximizing in-cabin and exterior safety. In-cabin solutions include seat
belt reminders, optimized airbag deployment, gesture control, driver
drowsiness alerts, and infant detection alarms, even if the infant is
covered by a blanket or hidden in a car seat or in the foot well.
Vayyar’s exterior solutions map and classify the car’s surroundings to
enable enhanced parking assistance, blind spot detection, lane switching
assistance, automatic speed and distance control, and alerts for height
obstacles, obstructions and more.
“Today, existing radar solutions do not deliver 4D point cloud
capabilities. Vayyar is the first to close the gap between the
robustness of radars and the resolution of LiDAR and optics. Our
real-time, 4D point cloud solution can work in any environmental
condition and doesn’t compromise one’s privacy. We believe our sensors
will create a shift in the way the automotive industry will use radar in
the future. We look forward to working with our partners to increase
passenger safety worldwide,” said Ian Podkamien, Director of Automotive
Business Development for Vayyar Imaging.
Vayyar’s Radar on a Chip (ROC) has 48 transceivers at 76-81GHz which
allows over 2,000 virtual channels. The chip also consists of an
internal DSP for real-time signal processing. This single chip solution
is easily integrated into existing automotive framework, reducing the
overall cost and number of sensors needed for the vehicle.
