In 2018, for the first time, Active Safety Systems such as Frontal Collision Warning (FCW) and Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) were included into the new version of China's New Car Assessment Program (C-NCAP); before 2022, NHTSA will also list AEB as one of the Standard Configurations for new car.
Thanks to its relatively mature technology, wide application and low cost, millimeter wave radar is expected to play a greater role in ADAS and automatic driving. It is estimated that the annual shipment of global automotive millimeter wave radar will reach 132 million in 2023, with a market size of 7.3 billion US dollars and a compound annual growth rate of 24.3%. Reviewing the development of global millimeter wave radar market, international giants boast a long history of research and development with profound technical accumulation while domestic companies still face difficulties in developing the 77GHz millimeter wave radar chip though they have occupy the domestic market of 24GHz millimeter wave radar widely used in blind spot detection, alarm and other systems.
However, Chinese companies still face difficulties in developing the 77GHz millimeter wave radar while international giants boast a long history of research and development with profound technical accumulation. In addition, China’s intelligent driving vehicles must adapt to more varied road conditions. So, how to achieve the cooperation and integration among millimeter wave radar, camera and lidar and solve the problem of sensor data fusion are a challenge for both Chinese and international companies.
Against this background, ICV Pro joins hands with Enmore China to hold the 2019 Automotive Radar & Sensor Fusion Technology Seminar & Exhibition on July 18-19, 2019 in Suzhou, Jiangsu Province, China, aiming to help the growth of automotive radar technology, promote the deep cooperation among industry, academia and research and provide a platform to related customers along the industry chain for communication of results and exploration of industry development.
