Ainstein, ADAC Automotive form JV to design, develop, manufacture mmWave radar-based sensing solutions
Ainstein, a designer and builder of intelligent radar systems, and ADAC Automotive, a leading Tier 1 global automotive supplier, have entered into an agreement to create a global joint venture—RADAC Automotive—that will design, develop, and manufacture innovative mmWave radar-based sensing solutions for use in the global automotive marketplace.
RADAC Automotive will hold demos of its first patent-pending solution, a mmWave radar module, designed to enhance the customer experience by providing hands-free vehicle access at this year’s CES.
The joint venture is the next step in the strategic alliance forged between Ainstein and ADAC Automotive and is expected to be operational by the second quarter of 2020.
Ainstein will contribute its innovative core radar technology to ADAC Automotive’s proven Tier 1 supplier reputation. RADAC Automotive will operate independently as a “new” radar technology Tier 1 supplier. RADAC will offer both products and services to the global automotive market.
RADAC Automotive will focus on mmWave radar-based sensing solutions for use in the global automotive marketplace for the following types of applications:
- Proximity Gesture Access Sensor
- Automobile Access and Entry
- Parking Assistance
- Object Detection
- Advanced Driver Assistance (ADAS)
- Autonomous Driving
- In-Cabin Sensing/Vital Sign Monitoring
