EchoDrive AV Radar

EchoDrive is a first-of-its-kind cognitive radar sensor for autonomous vehicles. It combines the advantages of Echodyne’s MESA® beam-steering technology with an unprecedented ability to adapt to different driving scenarios. EchoDrive provides high spatial resolution in azimuth and elevation and allows for the radar’s resources to be focused on the elements of the driving scene that matter most. The AV stack utilizes the radar’s dynamic control API to optimize scene measurements in real-time, such as focusing on selected areas of a highway interchange to deconflict with merging traffic or on selected regions around a crosswalk to detect and classify pedestrians. As an all-weather, all-environments sensor, EchoDrive enables the AV stack to dynamically interrogate any driving scene, creating a richer form of machine perception and enhancing safety for vehicles and pedestrians alike.

High Spatial Resolution Imaging Radar

Powerful imaging radar actively scans the driving scene in azimuth and elevation with high speed data connectivity.  

Road Following Radar

Echodyne's MESA technology creates a beam-steering radar follows the path of the road detecting fixed and tracking moving objects.

Cognitive Radar makes Smarter AVs

EchoDrive's novel Control API allows the AV stack to dynamically interrogate any aspect of the driving scene.
