The onset of autonomous vehicles has been a significant milestone in the automotive industry. However, when it comes to tracking these vehicles, the industry has a long journey to cover. At present, most autonomous vehicle sensing suites include two or three types of sensors, one of which is the radar. It is based on radio waves and maintains functionality across all weather and lighting conditions. Having a low resolution, the radars are susceptible to false alarms and are inept at identifying stationary objects. By paving the way for autonomous vehicle revolution, Arbe, the world’s first company to infuse ultra high-resolution functionalities into radar, is removing this limitation and effectively repositioning radars from a supportive role to the backbone of the sensor suite.
Arbe’s 4D imaging radar, Phoenix provides unprecedented levels of driving assistance, navigation path planning, and collision avoidance support. With Arbe, false alarms can be differentiated from the real-time threats under any azimuth, speed, elevation, proximity, and weather conditions. Entities of all sizes—from vehicles small or big to pedestrians, can be identified and tracked using Arbe’s technological services. The company calculates and continuously re-assures direction, speed, and velocity to deliver a high-definition situational awareness to drivers and autonomous vehicles. Kobi Marenko, CEO at Arbe, says, “Arbe achieved a breakthrough in radar performance.

Phoenix leverages proprietary chipset technology to offer the servicing of real-world driving needs, identifying and assessing challenging scenarios from the common to the exceptional, providing warnings and path planning for the road ahead. Arbe’s robust processing technology and advanced algorithms enable ultra high resolution, delivering a seamless radar performance by leveraging thousands of virtual transmitting and receiving channels. Arbe can reduce side lobe occurrence levels to almost zero, resolve range-doppler ambiguities, and avoid the noise of other radars. The enhanced FMCW (Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave) technology allows Phoenix to transmit and receive signals from multiple antennas.
Phoenix is designed to meet the highest transport industry safety and compliance standards. Additionally, Arbe is committed to addressing fundamental functionality concerns, including the elimination of false alarms, mutual radar interference, and protection of the system from cyber-attacks. Adding to these services, Arbe offers customers the ability to add their tracking, classification, and localization algorithms. Alternatively, customers can leverage Arbe’s advanced AI-based SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) to identify and track objects, differentiate dynamic objects from their surroundings, predict multiple object trajectory, and conduct sensor fusion with the camera and parallel systems. Arbe’s solution to autonomous vehicles is affordable and fully customizable to complement every level of vehicle autonomy.
By building the eyes and brain of the future cars using a high-resolution radar, Arbe is enabling cars to visualize the environment in any weather and any lighting condition, to long, mid and short ranges. As the radar of next-generation safety products for autonomous driving, Arbe’s solution will continue offering superior performance at a low cost, size, and power consumption. For the future, the company promises a significant step towards mainstreaming fully autonomous vehicles and a safer road ahead for drivers, passengers, and pedestrians on the busiest highways or densest urban streets.
