Ainstein launches K-79 imaging radar sensor

16th January 2019 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Ainstein has launched the K-79 autonomous vehicle imaging radar sensor, which produces high-resolution, detailed point cloud of a vehicle’s surroundings for both moving and stationary objects, the company announced on 14 January.

The sensor is optimised for autonomous operation of self-driving industrial trucks, tractors and similar specialty vehicles in hazardous conditions such as low-light and extreme dust.

The K-79 can identify the location of objects and provide range, speed, azimuth and elevation information. It can create a 2D point cloud map of surroundings and is capable of producing 3D images of detected objects, offering LiDAR-like image quality in poor conditions. It also allows for target classification to differentiate between vehicles and pedestrians.

A custom K-79-based sensing solution is currently being piloted by an organisation to automate mining excavation and material removal.
