As automakers strive for five-star safety ratings, the pressure is on for them to develop safer, advanced driver-assisted vehicles.
Market analysis have projected that by 2020, radar technology will be in 50% of all newly produced cars. The safety-related benefits of automotive radar, new autonomous vehicle development requirements and emerging safety requirements from organizations such as the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), have triggered rapid growth with steep implementation challenges for car makers and other radar focused developers. Adoption of these once premium safety features into mainstream production lines is fueling a need for faster time to market.
Rapidly prototype high-performance automotive radar
To help automakers meet these needs, NXP has developed a radar reference design targeted for Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) applications. Built in collaboration with Colorado Engineering, the new NXP RDK-S32R274 radar solution features the S32R27 processor, the TEF810x CMOS transceiver, and the FS8410 power management IC. The open and flexible development platform is designed to help automakers accelerate time to market by lowering the barriers of entry to radar application development with hardware, software and tools that ease radar implementations.
Replay the webinar with NXP’s Roger Keen, Radar Segment Director, and Ewan Harwood, Radar Applications Engineering, and explore this new RDK-S32R274 Radar Reference Platform.
During this webcast you will find out how you can use this solution to modify the characteristics of the radar processor and visually see the sensor working in a real-world environment.
