US: Autoliv presented its extended 77 GHz radar at the International Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2017 in Las Vegas. The 77 GHz radar enables object detections all around the car. The 77 GHz radar family is being extended from the corner radars currently in production to forward-looking and highly innovative satellite radars, enabling radar-based object detections all around the car.
In the 2017 model, one premium OEM utilizes the first radar-based non-reversible safety measure for critical side impact scenarios that triggers before the actual impact, enabled by Autoliv’s high-performance front corner radar products. By rapidly inflating the front-seat bolster, it can move you further from an intrusion and help reduce the forces of impact, saving lives and severe injuries.

Autoliv is one of the leading automotive radar system suppliers, with about seven million sensors delivered in 2016, providing high-resolution radar systems for the ever-increasing standards of the global 5-star NCAP car safety programs and supporting highly automated driving capability.
“With the highest distance resolution 77GHz radar in production today, Autoliv also has a leading design for future distributed radar architectures, that support better accuracy in separating objects close to each other, seamless tracking of objects around the car,” says Dr. Alan Jenkins, Director of Radar Technology at Autoliv.
Historically, Autoliv was the first and only supplier to deploy radar-based parking in a serial application project using only radar sensors, and is developing an efficient solution that combines safety features and comfort features in a scalable architecture.
