Irish radar developer Provizio has signed a deal with global automotive supplier Mergon to scale production of its imaging radar.

Mergon has key expertise in advanced manufacturing for production of the Provizio VizioR&I. The company aims to broaden availability of the  imaging radar technology with edge AI  perception for scalable L3+ autonomy. 

Applications for Provizio’s radar perception go beyond automotive to include trucking, industrial machinery, mining and smart-cities.

The deal covers box-building, where Mergon will assist in the designing, developing and manufacturing processes of Provizio’s VizioR&I production units as a pulg-and-play solution that is easy to install.. 

VizioR&I embeds radar perception, including object classification, speed, trajectory and driving freespace, by using Provizio’s library of proprietary Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and Digital Signal Processing (DSP) neural nets and algorithms. These 4D resolution (3D + Velocity) algorithms are coupled with embedded Nvidia GPU technology to provide edge intelligence. 

This gives range capabilities of up to and beyond 550 metres are crucial for applications including autonomous trucking where every second counts when it comes to understanding the way forward. 

Mergon was established in 1981 and has expertise in unit housings, cooling, clear vision systems and air management with manufacturing facilities in Ireland, UK, USA, Czech Republic and Mexico.

“Our mission is clear: to pioneer the delivery of safe, scalable and cost-effective robotics across mobility applications. This partnership with Mergon signifies a pivotal step towards realising this vision, bringing us close to our goal of democratising advanced safety technology. We will do this by unlocking radar perception that is beyond the current state-of-the-art in a highly user friendly “plug-and-play” manner, at scale. I’m looking forward to witnessing the impact of this collaboration as we continue to bring our technology to the world, ” said Luke Curley, Supply Chain Lead and Provizio Co-founder.

“This partnership aligns with our core objectives of turning creative and innovative ideas into great products that positively contribute to the automotive sector as well as our society,” said Caolan Bushell, Vice President of Business Development at Mergon. “£ I am confident  that our combined expertise will not only propel the advancement of autonomous driving technologies but also shape the future of mobility, paving the way for safer and more efficient mobility solutions globally.”;
