Daisuke Inoue, Kei Takahashi, Hiroyasu Yano, Noritaka Murofushi, Sadao Matsushima, Takashi Iijima


In recent years, Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), which has sensor devices mounted and avoids vehicle accidents by detecting objects in surroundings, started to be popular. Using the radar technology and detecting attenuation characteristics based on the weather and the Doppler Effect of the radio waves make possible the higher more reliable sensing over the sensing based on cameras and lasers. For this reason, it is expected that the demand will increase more and more in the future. Furukawa Electric has developed the multi-mode radar, based on pulse method radar which is in compliance with radio equipments specified for low power radio stations or for mobile detection sensors and is suitable for various applications. Since this radar is compact, has a lot of flexibility in mounting on vehicles and can be mounted inside the bumpers, it is suitable to various applications such as a front side monitoring and a rear side monitoring. Here, we introduce its development concept, its fundamental performances and its considerations for mounting on vehicles.
