Radar system envisions a safer future for self-driving cars


A Tel Aviv company has invented a new (old) solution for autonomous cars: radar. Currently, self-driving cars use cameras and sensors to detect objects and avoid collisions. Tesla, for example, uses radar in a limited capacity to see through weather at long range. But it uses it in combination with a series of cameras and sensors. This new system, called Ultres, would provide an alternative to cameras entirely. It’s a full-stack 4D, high-resolution, all-range radar solution that provides real-time object detection. If that’s too many words for you, think of it this way: your car could see better and react faster…
