Upgrade your radar systems with 77 GHz radar using fast modulation technology. Combine RADAR measurement of object distance and speed relative to sensor with vision based pedestrian detection.  Detect pedestrians and objects in-frame with RADAR data correlated to assign distance and speed, with information overlaid onto camera image.


The demo combines a 77GHz RADAR sensor module with a camera system, applying image processing techniques to detect people in the captured image and measure their distance and speed relative to the sensor using the RADAR. It uses the strengths of RADAR to accurately and quickly measure the range and velocity of objects with great resolution, from close to far range. This is combined with the vision based system that is effective in object identification, classification and tracking. The data from both sensors is correlated to assign a distance and speed to each detected person. Combining multiple types of sensors to leverage the strengths of each is key to effective ADAS systems and is central to enabling autonomous drive.
