24 GHz radar for commercial vehicles
Greater productivity, greater safety
Today’s commercial, construction and agricultural vehicles (CAVs) rely on radar systems to improve their productivity, energy efficiency and safety. As the world’s population grows at a record pace, there is increased pressure to plant and harvest more, and to speed up construction projects. But to do so, CAVs need ever more sophisticated systems to help them overcome challenges in the field or at a site.
For instance, if a 24GHz radar system onboard a CAV detects a large stone ahead, it informs the driver so he or she can mitigate the situation. Another example: if a tractor sinks in the mud, a trailer fitted with a 24 GHz radar system signals to the tractor to accelerate so it can pull through. A 24GHz radar also helps detect potentially dangers situations for a CAV driver or for pedestrians or workers nearby, and halts the machine before an accident occurs. These high-precision systems are key to producing more while keeping people safe. That is why today’s CAV 24 GHz radar designs must be reliable and durable while also reflecting the market’s cost expectations.
