EchoDrive is a first-of-its-kind cognitive radar sensor for autonomous vehicles. It combines the advantages of Echodyne’s MESA® beam-steering technology with an unprecedented ability to adapt to different driving scenarios. EchoDrive provides high spatial resolution in azimuth and elevation and allows for the radar’s resources to be focused on the elements of the driving scene that matter most. The AV stack utilizes the radar’s dynamic control API to optimize scene measurements in real-time, such as focusing on selected areas of a highway interchange to deconflict with merging traffic or on selected regions around a crosswalk to detect and classify pedestrians. As an all-weather, all-environments sensor, EchoDrive enables the AV stack to adaptively interrogate any driving scene, creating a richer form of machine perception and enhancing safety for vehicles and pedestrians alike.
