The ARS430 Advanced Radar Sensor is the premium variant of the 4th generation of radar sensors developed by Continental Business Unit ADAS.
The radar sensor is already in-service for automotive passenger and commercial vehicle applications especially for the functions Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Emergency Brake Assist (EBA).
The ARS430 is a 77 GHz radar sensor with digital beam-forming scanning antenna which offers two independent scans for far and near range. The sensor uses a pulse compression radar modulation to avoid the drawbacks of both the classical Pulse-Doppler and the FMCW approach.
