Autonomous drive technology - Surround radars
As a part of the autonomous driving project Drive Me, Volvo Cars is presenting a unique, complete system solution that makes it possible to integrate self-driving cars in real traffic – with ordinary people in the driver’s seat. The 76 GHz frequency-modulated, continuous wave radar is placed in the windscreen and combined with a camera. It detects objects on the road. Four radars behind the front and rear bumpers (one on each corner of the car) are able to locate objects in all directions. Long-range radars are placed in the rear of the car ensure a good rearward detection of vehicles in parallel lanes. The image illustrates functionality of technologies that are being developed and tested by Volvo Cars. The technology is currently not available in any Volvo cars.
