2024 Update comming soon
The global automotive corner radar sensor market has been witnessing significant growth, primarily driven by the increasing demand for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and the ongoing trend towards autonomous vehicles. Corner radar sensors play a crucial role in enhancing vehicle safety by providing information about the surrounding environment.
The integration of corner radar sensors is integral to the development of ADAS, which includes features such as blind-spot detection, cross-traffic alerts, and parking assistance.
Stringent safety regulations and standards imposed by various governments and organizations globally have stimulated the adoption of safety features, including radar sensors, in automobiles.
The high initial costs associated with radar sensor technology can pose challenges, particularly for mass-market adoption. However, as technology advances and production scales up, costs are expected to decrease.
North America and Europe regions have been early adopters of advanced automotive technologies, including radar sensors. The presence of established automotive manufacturers and a strong focus on safety standards contribute to the market growth.
Asia-Pacific with the growing automotive industry and increasing awareness of vehicle safety, the Asia-Pacific region is witnessing significant growth in the adoption of corner radar sensors.
An Automotive Corner Radar Sensor, commonly referred to as a corner radar, is a specialized sensor technology used in modern vehicles for various safety and driver-assistance applications.
These sensors utilize radar waves to detect objects and obstacles around the vehicle, particularly in its immediate vicinity, such as blind spots, intersections, and parking situations. Automotive corner radar sensors play a pivotal role in enhancing overall safety and improving driving experiences.
Radar sensors detect moving and stationary objects in harsh situations, such as cars, trains, buses, trucks, and cargo, using frequency modulated continuous wave radar.
On-board mobile equipment, also including reach haulers, forklifts, and mining vehicles, or port apparatus, including such carriers, handlers, and shippers, radar-based detectors are suitable for collision avoidance.
Due to considerable improvements in digital and RF/microwave technology, the applications of radar sensors are becoming increasingly diversified, and commercialisation in the area is accelerating.
Mercedes became the first company in the US to achieve certification from the SAE for a Level 3 driver assist system. As per National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), a driver should be present with active and alert, to take control in case of emergency in Level 3 ADAS enabled vehicles.
According to the company, the Mercedes Drive Pilot system can take over the bumper-to-bumper crawling duties up to 40 MPH without the need of the driver to keep their hands on the wheel.
BMW will launch the new 7 Series G70, later this year with Level 3 self-driving system. BMW 7 Series won’t be available with this sophisticated self-driving system all over the world, as the necessary legislation is defined by a particular nation.
For example, the functionality will be offered in Europe but not in the United States where the necessary regulations have yet to catch up with the advancement of technology.
Technologies for Heavy vehicles are made compulsory for better recognizing possible blind spots, warnings to prevent collisions with pedestrians or cyclists and tyre pressure monitoring systems.
Rules will first apply to new vehicles immediately and to all new vehicles from 7 July 2024. Some of the new measures will be expanded to cover different kinds of road vehicles until 2029.
The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration wants to ensure that manufacturers put safety first, with the implementation of this rule. In ADAS equipped vehicles some features are controlled by machine, the need to keep the humans safe remains the same and must be integrated from the beginning.
The final rule clarifies that, despite their innovative designs, vehicles with ADS technology must continue to provide the same high levels of occupant protection as current passenger vehicles. NHTSA’s approach to advanced vehicle technologies prioritizes safety across multiple areas, including data collection and analysis, research, human factors, and enforcement.
Renesas launched the first automotive radar transceivers with industry’s highest accuracy and lowest power consumption. It’s 76-81GHz transceiver designed to meet the demanding requirements of ADAS and higher autonomous driving applications.
Renesas will add the new RAA270205 high-definition radar transceiver into its growing sensor fusion portfolio, which combines radar, vision systems, and other sensing modalities.
NXP Semiconductors introduced Advanced Automotive Radar One-Chip Family for Next-Gen ADAS and Autonomous Driving Systems. The new SAF85xx one-chip family combines NXP’s high performance radar sensing and processing technologies into a single device, helping OEMs to introduce new short, medium and long range radar applications to cope up with challenging NCAP safety requirements.
With regard to the mandatory AEB regulation implemented in many countries of the world and the technical challenge of the high precision sensor needs in the ADAS industry, Autoroad has developed ALRR300 4D imaging radar using the 4th generation millimeter- wave radar IC of NXP.
Major automotive companies , and startups, are working on high-performance radar modules for advanced driving-assistance systems (ADAS) and future autonomous driving. Features such as advanced emergency braking systems (AEBs), will require higher performance and an increased number of radar modules per car.
To meet those requirements, Infineon launched the RASIC CTRX8181
The rapidly increasing automation, such as the developments toward autonomous driving and the progression of Industry 4.0. The applications of radar sensors are becoming more diverse, and commercialization in the sector is accelerating, owing to significant advancements in digital and RF/microwave technologies.
Currently, there are various radar applications, from traditional defines and surveillance to automotive radar for driver assistance to biomedical radar for imaging, monitoring, and treatment.
Continental Automotive is a leading mobiliser of the IC modules in the market. The latest integration has been SRR600 will be the next version of 76-81GHz SRRs, offering solid performance for both backward and future looking applications (including NCAP support) at a low cost.
Its tiny packaging is simple to install and functions well beneath all types of painted bumpers. With its availability as a smart and satellite radar as well as versatile networking technology, it supports a variety of vehicle architectures.
Infineon Technologies is part of the component manufacture trending companies in the current industry. The range of RASIC 77/79 GHz front-end radar sensor ICs for driving assistance systems including adaptive cruise control and collision warning as part of the XENSIV sensor family.
These RASIC technologies, which are capable of detecting and recognising objects at a range of up to 250 metres, provide the driver assistance capabilities needed to earn a Euro NCAP five-star certification (European New Car Assessment Program).
