AISIN and Vayyar Imaging Partner to Develop Exterior Sensing Solutions for Vehicles

8 January 2020

Global Tier-One supplier Aisin Seiki Co., Ltd. and Vayyar Imaging, the world leader in 4D imaging sensor technology, are collaborating to provide high resolution Short-Range Radar (SRR) for exterior vehicle sensing.

By providing a single-chip radar sensor, Vayyar will contribute to the safer functionality and advanced control that Aisin Seiki aims for.

The collaboration will combine AISIN's in-vehicle system expertise with Vayyar's 4D high-resolution short-range radar to develop exterior sensing capabilities for vehicles, such as blind spot detection for low-speed driving support.

"Our MIMO 4D SRR offers a high-resolution Point Cloud with wide field-of-view (FOV), resilience to harsh weather conditions and the ability to cope with semi-transparent materials—all at a very affordable price," said Ian Podkamien, Director of Automotive Business Development at Vayyar. "We are thrilled to collaborate with AISIN, a giant in the automotive ecosystem, and look forward to bringing together innovative exterior sensing solutions for the automotive industry."
