Leading technology company serving the mobility industry, Visteon Corporation has announced that it will collaborate with Steradian Semiconductors, an India-based high-tech imaging radar specialist, to produce enhanced ADAS for the global automotive market.
Steradian offers state-of-the-art 4D imaging radar solutions for the automotive industry and other traffic, precision parking, and industrial applications. It will provide Visteon with access to its advanced 4D image radar sensor hardware and perception software technology as part of a joint development agreement, a release from the company said.
Imaging radars are integral to Level 2+ autonomous driving technology because they enable safety application development, AI-based perception algorithms, and sensor fusion.
Visteon's DriveCore technology analyses input from multiple sensors to understand the environment and determine the appropriate action to steer, break and accelerate the vehicle. It uses artificial intelligence for object detection and tracking, situational analysis and driver-behavior planning to enable ADAS-related features, including driver monitoring, automatic lane-keeping and parking assistance.
By combining sensors and electronic processors, 4D imaging radar can calculate objects' size, location, direction, speed, and elevation in all weather and environment conditions, including fog, heavy rain, and darkness.
Srini Adiraju, Senior Director - Autonomous Driving, Visteon, said, 'Our Level 2+ autonomous driving technology is built on a scalable, open architecture with state-of-the-art machine-learning algorithms. These technologies along with imaging radars will enable our platform to provide improved object detection and lead to safer driving experiences.'
Ashish Lachhwani, Chief - Business Development, Steradian, said, 'Our joint development agreement will help support safe driving experiences and eventually lead to higher levels of autonomous driving.'
