Delphi’s Electronically Scanning Radar Brings Safety To 1 Million Vehicles

Delphi Automotive PLC recently sold its one millionth electronically scanning radar (ESR) globally – a key milestone as carmakers meet growing customer demand for new technologies that improve safety.

Since its debut in 2009, Delphi’s ESR has helped set the standard for long-range automotive radar sensors. Key features were introduced in this radar, including multi-mode operation, digital beam forming and a STAR-Pulse Doppler waveform that resulted in a new level of proficiency, according to Delphi. Even with the industry adopting these features, ESR remains a top-performing sensor in the industry with sales to eight global automakers.

At 76GHz, Delphi’s ESR provides substantial range that is competitive with most similar radar systems on the market. This milestone for long-range, forward-looking radar adds to the millions of Advanced Driver Assistance System radars Delphi has delivered to date.

Delphi’s portfolio of radar and vision systems provides layers of protection that intelligently monitor and scan the vehicle’s internal and external environment. ESR makes it possible to precisely detect objects in two coverage areas with one radar unit. Delphi’s newest generation of ESRs can scan 200 meters forward for long-range and 60 meters (196 feet) for short-range with a field of view of 20 degrees and 90 degrees respectively. They can also enable a complete suite of collision avoidance and driver convenience features like Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) for vehicles, pedestrians and animals, as well as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).

“Passive safety technology, such as seat belts and airbags, has significantly helped reduce vehicle fatalities but, despite this, the U.S. still records about 6 million accidents per year,” said Beth Schwarting, vice president, Delphi Electronic Controls. “The goal is to prevent an accident before it happens and that’s where ESR and many of Delphi’s other advanced driver assistance systems can help.”
