Global mobility supplier that develops advanced technology and components, Denso on Friday announced that it has developed Global Safety Package 3 (developed in cooperation with J-QuAD DYNAMICS Inc), an active safety system designed to improve safety of vehicles by giving them high sensing capability of their surroundings.
In a press statement, the company said that this product is used in the Hino Ranger, the Lexus NX, and the Toyota Noah and Voxy, which were released in August 2021, October 2021, and January 2022, respectively.
The Global Safety Package uses the combined performance of a millimetre-wave radar sensor and vision sensor to assist the driver in controlling the vehicle safely. The millimetre-wave radar sensor detects the shapes of road objects, such as vehicles and guardrails. In contrast, the vision sensor uses a camera to see the environment ahead of the vehicle.
In order to eliminate road accidents and achieve stress-free mobility, the auto components supplier believes it is essential to not only improve safety products in vehicles using cutting-edge technology but also develop those products at attractive prices so they can benefit more vehicles. Under this philosophy, the company developed Global Safety Package 3 to improve its active safety and driver assistance performance while reducing product size and cost.
With a broader detection angle, longer detection range, and improved speed resolution (the difference in speed between two targets by which the sensor can distinguish them as two separate objects when it detects them), this product helps avoid collisions at intersections, whether with other vehicles or pedestrians. Moreover, the radar sensor has fewer installation requirements and can be used in more vehicle types and models, the company added.
