Arbe claims to launch the world’s first ultra-high resolution automotive radar

Kobi Marenko of Arbe

Arbe is excited to announce the launch of Phoenix, its automotive 4D imaging radar beta product. This new front-end system, powered by Arbe’s proprietary chipset technology, enables evaluation and development towards production and full commercialisation of 4D imaging radar for all levels of vehicle autonomy. Phoenix provides an image 100 times more detailed than other top industry radars, offering superior separation of stationary and moving objects in real time – an industry first.

Arbe will present Phoenix at CES 2019 in Las Vegas and during the North American International Auto Show in DetroitPhoenix proprietary chipset is the first system in the industry to leverage the advanced 22nm RF CMOS process. This allows a breakthrough in radar performance by:

  • Delivering an image 100 times more detailed
  • Doubling radar sensitivity
  • Reducing false alarms through advanced algorithms and unparalleled channel separation
  • Separating small and large objects through a high dynamic range
  • Providing clear boundaries of stationary and moving objects

Additionally, by leveraging the 22nm RF CMOS process, Phoenix dramatically reduces costs while consuming the lowest power per channel in the industry.

“The launch of our radar’s front-end system is a major step toward making our vision a reality,” said Kobi Marenko, CEO of Arbe. “The advanced functionality achieved by this launch will transform the radar’s role from a supportive sensor to the backbone of the autonomous driving sensor suite for all levels of vehicle autonomy.”

While current radars have up to 12 channels, Phoenix is 100 times more detailed, supporting more than 2000 virtual channels with two transmit devices (24 channels each) and four receiving devices (12 channels each). This allows Phoenixto track, separate and identify hundreds of objects simultaneously to deliver a highly detailed image of the environment in a wide field of view and at long range, in addition to separating objects by elevation.

Arbe is a recipient of the 2018 Global Technology Innovation Award from Frost & Sullivan. Recognised for its breakthrough full-stack 4D imaging radar system for the automotive environment, along with its future business value in terms of scalability, application diversity, technology licensing and human capital.
