Delivery robots, parking assistance, safety at construction sites, self-driving shuttles and taxis - numerous use cases require support from high-performance automotive radars. Although racing cars is not a widespread example, it’s just as valid - as proved by the Lions Racing Team and their collaboration with smartmicro.
The Lions Racing Team has incorporated smartmicro’s UMRR-96 Type 153 corner radar in their vehicle. They’ve been testing it for the past weeks and are more than happy with the outcome. According to Lars Christoph Geiger, the Lion’s Head of Driverless, smartmicro’s radar has been a valuable extension, increasing the vehicle’s performance and object-detection accuracy.
