The new front radar sensor detects objects and people quickly, precisely, and reliably thanks to its long detection range and outstanding angle separability, not to mention its wide field of view. The own chirp sequence modulation improves the sensor perception by robust reflections. This enables the sensor to detect objects’ positions, relative speeds, and directions of motion with extremely high precision. These properties make the radar sensor ideal for chaotic urban traffic, where multiple objects and people can be simultaneously detected, differentiated, and for example, tracked before emergency braking is initiated as needed. Thanks to radar sensor technology, this also works in poor visibility.
The front radar plus is also beneficial for driver assistance functions, and partially automated functions. Due to the sensor’s long detection range, these functions can be realized at speeds of up to 210 km/h. The sensor’s properties ensure greater safety, comfort and convenience when driving.
With the front radar sensors, it is possible to detect the position, relative speed, and direction of movement of other traffic participants and objects from a distance very reliably and even at higher speeds with just one radar measurement. The front radar sensor premium impresses in particular with its improved vertical and horizontally separability. This makes it possible to unambiguously classify even small objects and vulnerable road users. The sensor detects, for example, that a motorcycle rider is overtaking a truck and reliably identifies both objects despite the small distance between them. When the vehicle approaches a tunnel, the radar can clearly identify a motorcycle rider traveling in front since it is able, thanks to its outstanding horizontal separability, to detect the space between the motorcycle and the ceiling of the tunnel. These properties allow for a direct height measurement and better classification of traffic participants (vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists) and potential obstacles such as tires or pallets in the lane.
