APTIV’S MOST ADVANCED SENSORS PUSH THE ENVELOPE

The Next Wave of Radar 

Better Sensors Lead to a Better Environmental Model

Aptiv's Next-Gen ADAS platform is the foundation for advanced active safety, and sophisticated radars provide the sensor input that make that foundation even more robust. In 2022, Aptiv unveiled our latest advancements in radar, the Gen7 Radar Family, building on capabilities pioneered in the FLR4 and SRR6.

Introducing the Gen7 Family of Radars

SENSORS FOR EVERY NEED

The three members of the Gen7 Radar Family take advantage of the latest sensing technologies to cover every angle:

  • SRR7: This corner radar is compatible with streaming and zonal architectures and supports detection of close objects and vulnerable road users
  • SRR7+: This premium version of the corner radar supports a dual-corner radar configuration for adaptive cruise control (ACC) and is characterized by high sensitivity, range and resolution
  • FLR7: This forward-facing radar is the industry’s first base-level radar with 4D capability, a 300-meter detection range and excellent angular resolution

FLR4 Family of Radars

Forward-Facing Radars Include First 4D Imaging Radar 

The FLR4 forward-facing radars have two distinct variants:

  • FLR4: The next generation of the forward-facing radar doubles range resolution and triples vertical field of view over previous models.
  • FLR4+: Aptiv’s first 4D imaging radar can meet the most demanding customer applications at an attractive price/performance ratio. Its range detection is an industry-leading 300 meters, and it supports true elevation target discrimination with machine learning.

SRR6 Family of Corner / Side Radars

Next Generation Dramatically Improves Performance

The SRR6 corner/side radars are available in three variants:

  • SRR6: The base-level radar improves detection range by 40 percent versus the prior generation and doubles range resolution while tripling the vertical field of view.
  • SRR6+: This radar doubles detection range over the prior generation and adds higher-resolution angular discrimination to improve the quality of an environmental model.
  • SRR6 HD: This model provides maximum resolution for highly automated, short-range applications, such as valet parking and low-speed driver-out-of-the-loop automation.
