UPCOMING I DRVEGRD 169

CORNER RADAR

Installed on a driving platform, smartmicro's newest radar spans a fine grid for detecting and separating objects in its field of view. DRVEGRD 169 is a highly-innovative sensor aiming to increase safety by detecting potential collisions, triggering warning signals, and supporting automated safety functions.

 

  • User-selectable operation modes, antennas, and frequencies: 76GHz to 81GHz
  • 4 Dimensions (4D): range, speed, azimuth and elevation angle
  • Pixel-High Definition (PxHD) resolution: true angular separation
  • Blind and misalignment diagnosis, interference suppression
  • Plug-and-play 360° sensor data fusion

APPLICATIONS

TECHNICAL DETAILS

  • Field of view of 140°+ horizontally
  • Coverage of 28° in elevation
  • Range interval of 0.1 to 130 meters (426.5 ft)
  • True range (10cm/3.9 in) and speed separation (0.1m/s) of objects

ADJUSTABLE OPERATION MODES

 

DRVEGRD 169 is a 79 GHz (76GHz to 81GHz) radar sensor with adjustable software-defined operation modes, antennas, and frequencies, to faultlessly cover the field of view in each use case.

NEWEST TECHNOLOGY

 

The radar’s hardware includes NXP's latest 16nm-FinFET Radar MCU S32R29, as well as RF CMOS Radar Transceiver TEF82xx.

INCREASED PERFORMANCE

 

DRVEGRD 169 has significantly boosted processing power, increased output of point clouds, and higher resolution - targeting ASIL-B (SEooC) and NCAP.

RELIABLE TECHNOLOGY

 

Thanks to the sensor's almost unbreakable design, its performance is unaffected by harsh weather conditions and works in critical environments.

Use Cases

CONSTRUCTION APPLICATIONS

15% of fatal work-related accidents on construction sites in Germany in 2019 were caused by collisions with moving heavy construction vehicles. A reliable 360° coverage around fast-moving vehicles is necessary to ensure safety in the areas that are hardly observable for the driver.
