Autonomous Transportation & ADAS

Cameras and sensors enable the autonomous systems of tomorrow to see and feel nearly like a human being. Perception sensing systems such as RADAR and LIDAR are the eyes of autonomous vehicles, gathering information on the environment and identifying objects and dangerous situations. Intelligent navigation sensing systems, based on inertial measurement units (IMUs) and innovative gyroscope technology, determine the position of the vehicle even in difficult-to-access areas.

It is the combination of different subsystems—RADAR, LIDAR, inertial MEMS/IMUs, camera, and ultrasonic sensors—that sets the framework for successful autonomous transportation and future advanced driver assistance systems with the highest safety and reliability. For over 25 years, Analog Devices has been one of the pioneers for high quality sensing systems in the transportation market and automotive system technology space. With our ambitious 360° approach and our innovative sensor fusion concept, we target holistic, industry-leading solutions for best-in-class perception and navigation sensing systems with the highest performance and fidelity to achieve next-generation Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and autonomous applications.
