ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL AND FORWARD COLLISION WARNING SYSTEMS 

The Smart Microwave Sensor radar is an after-market device fitted to trucks that record, warn and identify near miss and dangerous driving scenarios.  

 

Forward Collision Warning

Smartmicro automotive Radars for Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Forward Collision Warning (FCW) are optimized for long range detection. The distance control function is available at any speed and can also be used in Stop&Go situations. A collision warning function is additionally implemented. This technology is in volume production since 2008 and is used for example by the French carmaker PSA.

Featuring the latest system-on-chip design Smartmicro sensors use a world leading 24GHz SiGe BICMOS RF chip for highest performance and lowest cost, and brilliant antenna technology.

We offer radar sensors as well as engineering support. We are able to provide a complete tool set for development and test: sensors, communication and data fusion equipment, to find the optimum setup for any automotive sensor installation and data logging and monitoring software. The Radars are available in different versions, so the setup can be adapted to the individual customer requirements.

Smartmicro Radar sensor models can be applied for front, side or rear pre-crash sensing to initiate reversible restraint systems. This can be accomplished using stand alone sensors, alternatively in many cases it is advantageous to implement pre-crash tracking software module into an existing driver assistance system, improving the cost-performance ratio and benefit for the customer. This technology is in volume production since 2010 in Audi models.

The pre-crash tracking software module has been developed and thoroughly tested and can be made available for selected hosting applications like blind spot detection, lane change assist and forward collision warning. It is optimized to ensure a reliable detection of a potential crash as well as a very low false alarm rate.
