Continental, one of the prominent technology companies has recently unveiled a compact radar system for passenger cars. The new, short-range radar operates within high-resolution 77 Gigahertz (GHz) range which helps in detecting the environment at a much higher resolution and level of accuracy will replace the the 24 GHz technology currently at use.
The company has enhanced the integration density in the new system. As a result, the individual components of the system, such as the antenna and the radio-frequency (RF) chip, are now housed in a smaller installation space, rendering the sensor even more compact. This, in turn, makes it easier to install the system in the vehicle, even in confined place.
Interestingly, the radar, with its Right- Turn Assist system for the passenger cars will make turning-off significantly safer and will provide welcome support for car drivers, especially in the confusing situations that sometimes occur in urban traffic. Furthermore, this new technology already meets the requirements of the Euro NCAP safety scenarios for 2022 onwards.
