Xilinx And Continental Announce Cutting-Edge 4D Radar Platform For Autonomous Vehicles

Adaptive computing innovator Xilinx announced a collaboration with automotive heavyweight Continental today that will advanced ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) and autonomous driving systems at level 2 today, and for generations to come, towards the goal of full level 5 autonomy. Continental’s new ARS 540 (Advanced Radar System) will harness the power of Xilinx’s Zynq UltraScale MPSoC platform to deliver the industry’s first 4D imaging radar solution that’s production-ready for deployment.

4D radar is a cutting-edge technology that allows ultra-high resolution detail for object identification in any lighting or weather conditions and at higher speeds. 4D radar can determine an object’s range (distance), azimuth (direction) or even elevation, as well as its relative speed, where previous generation radar systems could only determine speed and azimuth.
