Hella brings latest radar technology for passenger cars into series production
With over 90 million 24GHz sensors, the German automotive supplier HELLA is one of the world’s largest suppliers of radar sensors. With the introduction of the 77GHz radar sensors, the company is now further expanding its leading position in the field of radar technology.
For example, series production of the latest 77GHz radar technology for an international automobile manufacturer has now started at the HELLA electronics plant in Hamm. The technology was first brought into series production in the truck sector last spring.
HELLA is also already developing the second 77GHz radar generation, which will go into series production for another German premium manufacturer in 2024.
“With our innovative 77GHz radar sensors, we are continuing to drive the trend towards automated driving,” says Björn Twiehaus, who, as a member of the HELLA Management Board, is jointly responsible for the Electronics division. “By using highly efficient hardware and smart software, we are taking radar-based 360-degree environment perception to the next level and are thus driving safe mobility.”
On the way from assisted to autonomous driving, radar sensors have established themselves as one of the core technologies for seamless environment perception. They continuously record the environment, recognize pedestrians and other traffic participants and objects around the vehicle – and deliver reliable results regardless of weather and lighting conditions.
