Digital imaging radar tech spcialist Uhnder is partnering bitsensing to develop 4D digital imaging radar. Austin-based Uhnder and Seoul-based bitsensing will develop the new technology to meet the needs of the largest automotive OEMs in Korea.

The solution will enable advanced safety features, such as automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure warning. It will also enhance object detection and tracking capabilities in a variety of driving conditions, such as heavy rain, snow, fog, and in bright sun. In addition, it will optimise low-level fusion between radar and camera to enhance reliability of its performance across various conditions.

Dr Jae-Eun Lee, CEO of bitsensing, spoke about the collaboration, saying, “We are excited to be working with Uhnder to develop digital automotive radar solutions that meet passenger vehicle needs for the safest and most Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, thereby reducing road fatalities by minimising human error and preventing road accidents.”

Digital imaging radar provides several benefits over traditional analogue radar systems, including higher resolution, improved object detection, and the ability to capture 4D data, which includes range, Doppler, azimuth, and elevation information.

“To build a ground-breaking radar, a team of talented engineers with years of automotive industry experience is crucial,” stated Max Liberman, VP of Chips at Uhnder. “bitsensing possesses all the necessary radar solution expertise that automotive customers require. With the right experience, automotive knowledge, and customer base, bitsensing is well-equipped to create a 4D imaging radar solution that delivers superior performance and reliability.”

bitsensing is a Korean imaging radar technology startup delivering automotive-grade radar. Texas based Uhnder delivers automotive-grade digital radar sensing technologies employing Digital Code Modulation (DCM). Uhnder has developed a fully software-defined radar-on-chip designed to enable high-resolution digital perception for ADAS.
