Evolving Automotive Safety Requirements Demand Faster, More Efficient RADAR Processing Solutions

At the vehicle sensor level,
there is a requirement of a careful price/performance balance among camera, RADAR and LiDAR technologies, taking into
account their relative strengths and weaknesses.
All three technologies have demonstrated their unique value for automotive safety applications, and no single
technology is complete in its ability to enable autonomous driving or advanced driver assistance system
(ADAS) functionality.

Camera and RADAR sensors are similar at the processor level in that they impose significant computational
 workloads. Shrinking pixel size and increasing pixel density can readily improve camera-based image resolution.
Achieving higher-resolution RADAR sensors, however, introduces exponentially larger demands on the underlying
 processing platform.
Here we’ll assess some of the technology trends, challenges and opportunities fueling the automotive industry’s
continued innovation in and growing reliance on high-resolution RADAR for advanced vehicle safety features.
