DAYTON, Ohio, March 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Oculii, a leading provider of advanced AI software for radar perception, today announced the launch of FALCON and EAGLE, the world’s highest-resolution commercial 4D imaging radar sensors.
Leveraging its AI-powered Virtual Aperture Imaging™ software platform and existing automotive-grade radar hardware, Oculii redefines radar resolution and sensitivity to deliver unparalleled performance at price points several orders of magnitude more affordable than comparable 3D sensors.
Radar, with its low cost, reliability, and all-weather vision, has transformed the automotive industry, powering innovations like emergency braking, blindspot detection, and parking-assist systems. However, due to radar’s limited resolution, it has fallen short of the automotive industry’s autonomy needs. Improving radar performance is possible by adding more antennas to sensors, but this approach significantly increases cost, size, and power consumption.
Oculii’s revolutionary approach uses AI software to solve this hardware problem.
Oculii’s AI-powered Virtual Aperture Imaging platform dynamically sends out an adaptive, phase-modulated waveform that changes in real time with the environment and then encodes that data over time, increasing the resolution of any radar hardware up to 100X. This improved resolution and sensitivity unlocks the potential of market proven commercial radars by enabling all weather sub-degree horizontal and elevation spatial resolution up to 350 meters around a full 360° field of view.
“Oculii is challenging fundamental century-old assumptions about radar with a full-stack, holistic view to radar perception,” said Oculii CEO and Co-founder Steven Hong. “By developing an innovative AI platform that constantly learns from and adapts to the environment, we have radically transformed what is possible with radar perception – paving the road for a safer and more autonomous future.”
