Since the company was found in 1999, the development and production of 24 GHz radar sensors has been part of InnoSenT’s core business. This frequency is excellently suited for measuring the motion, velocity, angle and distance of nearby objects.
The 24 GHz radar sensor has been continuously developed true to the motto ‘Highest performance in the smallest space to the least expensive conditions’, and is now one of the world’s leading products in radar-based customer solutions. These applications open doors, measure filling levels, report movements, monitor railings and traffic, prevent collisions – to mention just a few.
In terms of driver assistance systems, InnoSenT currently supplies its 24GHz sensors for monitoring the area behind the vehicle. Examples include lane change and lane departure assist functions, and also rear-end accidents and exit warnings.
In the growing driver assistance system market it is the much more powerful 77 GHz bandwidth that has made the running. In contrast to the ‘short-sighted’ 24 GHz radar, the 77 GHz frequency can record across both moderate and long distances.
In addition, the 77 GHz stands out thanks to a significantly higher Doppler and range resolution; this also goes hand-in-hand with a higher separation of objects, better spatial resolution in distance measurements and a more precise measurement of velocity.
- As a technology driver, InnoSenT is currently launching the most innovative radar development: the 79GHz radar sensor.
- The goal is to provide more bandwidth for even more complex and intelligent driver assistant systems.
- InnoSenT has embarked on this journey because it shares one of the automotive industry’s biggest visions, namely that tomorrow’s vehicles will be able to drive themselves.
