New 4D Automotive Radars Hitting the Market

Promising near LiDAR resolution, enabling fully autonomous vehicles and other sensing applications

There has been a lot of activity recently around next generation radar sensors for automotive applications. These newer “4D radar” units determine an object's location in range, azimuth, elevation, and relative speed to provide detailed information about the driving environment as earlier automotive radar systems only captured speed and azimuth. These new radar sensors provide better resolution than previous versions which is where Lidar excels. Here are some of the latest developments in this area.
