Autonomous Shuttles and Robotaxis
smartmicro DRVEGRD radars are crucial for robotaxis and autonomous shuttles, enabling perception stacks to provide precise object detection and collision avoidance. By integrating DRVEGRD data into autonomous perception stacks, these vehicles can provide safe and reliable autonomous transportation, ensuring passenger comfort and efficient navigation.
Middle and Last Mile Delivery
smartmicro automotive radars offer precise object detection, which is essential in enabling middle and last-mile delivery. Vehicles deploying our technology can navigate urban environments with heightened situational awareness, ensuring smooth maneuvering and minimizing the risk of collisions.
The construction industry can leverage automotive radars in construction vehicles and other heavy equipment. These radars can provide enhanced visibility, object detection, and proximity warnings, reducing the risk of accidents and improving productivity.
Mining and Quarrying
Radars can play a vital role in mining and quarrying operations by providing enhanced object detection, proximity alerts, and collision avoidance in heavy machinery, haul trucks, and excavators. This technology can help improve worker safety and optimize operations in challenging environments.
Automotive radars can be integrated into agricultural machinery, such as tractors and harvesters, to improve object detection, obstacle avoidance, and precision farming that enables the vehicles to operate safely with or without a human in the driver's seat. This technology can enhance the efficiency and minimize human work time.
Precise object detection and monitoring provided by smartmicro radars enhances the safety and efficiency of waste collection and disposal processes. Integrated into waste management vehicles, the radar assists in maneuvering and preventing potential accidents.
Through the deployment of our radars, the logistics yards can benefit from comprehensive monitoring and detection capabilities, enhancing safety for workers and vehicles. Thanks to high-performance detection, the logistic centers can effectively manage vehicle movement and monitor blind spots, ultimately increasing operational efficiency.
smartmicro's product portfolio offers a consistent software toolchain and data output format. Multiple DRVEGRD sensors can be configured to enable 360° of coverage around the vehicle, eliminating the need for implementing additional solutions.
THE DRVEGRD LINE
4D/PxHD FRONT RADAR
DRVEGRD 171 is a 4D/PxHD radar with enhanced precision and performance. It features three different range modes: the shortest covering very close distances of 0.2 to 40m; the longest being able to cover an extensive range of up to 240m. The wide 100° azimuth field of view enhances situational awareness. Thanks to its high accuracy, the sensor is an excellent choice for forward-looking automotive applications.
4D/UHD FRONT RADAR
With 48 virtual channels, the DRVGRD 152 offers a 100° field of view in azimuth featuring a 2° UHD angular separation, extending up to 180 meters in range. The radar introduces 4D functionality through a 20° field of view in elevation. The sensor presents a choice between two operation modes, allowing users to strike a balance between extending the range and achieving finer range resolution based on their specific needs.
4D/UHD CORNER RADAR
Featuring wide azimuth field of view of 140° and operation scan modes, the DRVEGRD 169 accommodates a wide operational spectrum — from slow-moving autonomous robots to conventional vehicles. When synchronized with multiple DRVEGRD 169 units or combined with front radar, this system enables comprehensive 360° coverage for any vehicle.
