2.1 PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Oculii’s Falcon radar is intended for automotive use and operates in the 76-81GHz band. These radars are integrated into a vehicle to improve vehicle safety systems. They can be integrated to a vehicle as stand along sensors, a set of sensors or a part of more complex systems that can include cameras, lidars, and other types of sensors. The aim is to use these stand along or integrated systems to provide features such as Automatic Cruise Control (ACC), Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Blind Spot Detection and Level 1-5 autonomous driving.

Powered by Virtual Aperture Imaging, Oculii’s FALCON Point Cloud Radars can deliver thousands of points per second, capturing all relevant environmental information. Oculii’s radar point clouds perform in all weather conditions, and each point directly measures highly accurate doppler information, enabling immediate separation and efficient tracking of any moving targets.

Virtual Aperture Imaging (VAI) is an array multiplier technique that can be used on any transceiver architecture. The Oculii FALCON is a single chip, automotive grade sensor. Using VAI, Oculii’s FALCON can achieve ~1-degree angular resolution across a wide Field of View.
