Understanding Corner Radar for ADAS and AD
Radar technology for passenger and commercial vehicles has come a long way from its initial usage in terms of technology advancements, a general acceptance of use cases, improved accuracy & precision, and even classification. But its adaptation is seeing a measured response for cases other than long-range radar applications. Considering the future requirements both from a regulatory point of view (NCAP) and customer expectations (L3 and above), it is evident that Corner radar is not only playing a major role but also might be a mandatory requirement. Corner radars are best suited for applications such as turn assist, automated emergency braking (AEB) and vulnerable road user (VRU) detection beyond the purview of the driver. This whitepaper outlines such future requirements and describes how a corner radar system can meet them.
Some of the key areas this whitepaper covers include:
- NCAP take on Corner Radar
- Corner radar requirement for SAE level 3 autonomy and above
- Corner radar applications
- Practical Challenges in developing a corner radar system
