4D automotive imaging radar slashes costs by two thirds
With a newly developed automotive 4D imaging radar, Israeli startup company RadSee promises to reduce costs for car manufacturers by up to 60%. The company’s secrets lie in a patented antenna technology, system architecture - and beyond that, the use of commercial off-the-shelf components.

The technology is, according to RadSee, processor-agnostic, which means that customers can choose from a broad range of hardware platforms. The system offers a high angular resolution of 0,25°, combines with a static and dynamic object detection in a 120° field of view at distances up to 400 metres.

“The automotive radar industry, poised to a market increase to above $10 billion by 2025, is eager for an innovative solution to make 4D imaging radar happen, but still the cost matters,” asserts Cédric Malaquin, Technology & Market Analyst at Yole Développement. “An approach combining cost effective off-the-shelf automotive grade components with cutting-edge performance, is likely to be a winning solution. At Yole, we track the many alternatives, analyze their strengths and drawbacks and deliver a comprehensive and accurate vision of this industry.”

As a key safety feature, automotive cameras alone are regarded as unreliable when driving conditions are dark or glaringly bright, or when the weather is bad, and lidar remains prohibitively expensive. Radar, however, is proven effective under any conditions using radio-frequency transmitters and receivers to accurately determine the shape, size, and movement of all objects in view, no matter the environmental conditions.

“With constant progress in ADAS, and direct feedback from key automotive industry players, the need for affordable, high-accuracy radars has never been greater,” said RadSee Co-founder and CEO, Arnon Afgin. “Our team focused on developing a radar solution that specifically addresses cost and risk – the key obstacles to widespread adoption by OEMs and Tier ones.”
