Novelda A/s (Oslo, Norway), a provider of ultrawideband (UWB) sensors, has added a multi-seat occupancy detection function to its X7 in-cabin sensor.

The X7 rader chip is already capable of child presence detection (CPD) and vital signs monitoring and the company has added multi-seat targeting through a software upgrade. It can also detect car crash survivors through its heartbeat detection functionality. The X7’s field of view (FoV) of nearly 180 degrees allows companies to reduce the number of sensors in the vehicle, providing cost savings compared to other solutions, including 60GHz radar.

Novelda’s UWB sensor technology consumes less than 50 microwatts at one frame-per-second.
