Metawave, founded in 2017, is working with Infineon on Metawave’s long-range, high-resolution Warlord radar for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). The terms of the investment were not disclosed.
Metawave is using a combination of metamaterials and artificial intelligence to enable object classification capabilities for ADAS and autonomous driving. For the fixed wireless and cellular communications it is developing the hybrid analog-digital Saber antenna platform for dense point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, and mesh configurations for backhaul and access networks. Metawave claims its technology enables longer-range reach to extend the footprint of base stations, using narrow beams formed and steered in the analog space without causing or being susceptible to interference.
“We’ve been working closely with Infineon to integrate our front-end, high-resolution radar imaging capabilities with Infineon’s market-leading, highly integrated 77GHz radar transceivers supporting ASIL-C automotive systems,” said Metawave’s CEO, Maha Achour, in a statement. “Our team has already demonstrated a high-resolution automotive 77GHz radar, with object classification capabilities based on a simpler architecture that scales for long ranges and wider field of views.”
