Imaging radar brings cognitive sensing to autonomous vehicles

The high performance radar platform company for the Autonomous Age, Echodyne has announced a breakthrough imaging radar for autonomous vehicles. EchoDrive is built on proven MESA technology and offers a new type of sensor functionality that significantly enhances machine perception. Echodyne will be holding private meetings to introduce EchoDrive to the AV industry in Las Vegas during the 2020 CES show, taking place 7th-10th January.

EchoDrive delivers unprecedented real time control over the radar’s interrogation of the drive scene, enabling a richer form of machine perception. The radar’s dynamic control API leverages knowledge in the AV stack, such as HD maps, V2X, and other sensor data, to optimise measurement moment by moment through ever-changing environments, conditions, and scenarios.
