Gapwaves and Uhnder collaborate on Digital High Resolution Radar

The technology from the two companies will be deployed in a last mile autonomous delivery vehicle.

Gapwaves, a Sweden-based company with patented technology for millimeter wave waveguide antennas, today announced its collaboration with Uhnder to develop a high resolution radar that will be deployed in a last mile autonomous delivery vehicle. Gapwaves is a pioneer within waveguide antennas for millimeter wave frequency applications such as automotive radars and 5G telecom systems. Its technology has received massive industry interest leading to license agreements with Tier 1 automotive radar manufacturers. Gapwaves’ innovative waveguide radar antenna solution enables a wide field of view and high isolation.

Uhnder, an Austin, Texas-based company, has developed a unique digital Radar-on-Chip (RoC), using a combination of advanced CMOS and Digital Code Modulation (DCM) technology. Uhnder's 4D digitally modulated radar chip offers groundbreaking performance by integrating 192 virtual channels onto a single chip and pioneers High Contrast Resolution (HCR), which provides significantly improved range and angular resolution and makes it possible to separate small radar reflectors from proximate large reflectors. This permits a more accurate and safe reaction time than with current radar chip technology and paves the way for advanced ADAS functions for today's vehicles and future driverless vehicles. The Uhnder RoC also has low Interference susceptibility Factor (ISF), making it attractive to deploy as the number of radars per vehicle increases.

The waveguide antennas from Gapwaves are complementary to and integrate well with Uhnder’s Radar-on-Chip (RoC). Together, the two companies will excite the market with a product offering higher resolution, increased signal-to-noise ratio in a very compact form factor.

Gapwaves CEO Lars-Inge Sjöqvist comments:

”Uhnder is breaking new ground with their RoC and 4D radar solution and we are really excited to be part of that. We are already familiar with the high interest for these products from the automotive industry. Now we also see new markets expanding with need for innovative mm-wave radar applications”.

Uhnder CEO Manju Hegde says:

“Gapwaves is a leader in millimeter waveguide antennas and combines some of the most advanced technology for low losses, compact form factors and transitions with sophisticated materials and manufacturing process. We are happy to work with them to take their expertise and capability to production in new markets and applications.”
