A sensor that works in even the most adverse conditions is essential for autonomous vehicle applications. The performance of some sensing technology is reduced in poor weather or because of a build up of dust and dirt on the sensor. Navtech Radar's sensor is a reliable choice for all-weather sensing in autonomous vehicle applications. The high-resolution, 360°, long-range radar performs even in adverse conditions, when other sensors fail. It builds a data-rich picture of its surroundings, working beyond the limits of a person's capability. The patented radar technology has been selected as the key sensor in pioneering autonomous vehicle research. Our sensors are fully ROS compatible and quick to integrate.

How Does it Work?
Example: Navigation research with Oxford Robotics Institute.
The high-resolution, 360°, long-range radar builds a data-rich picture of its surroundings, whatever the conditions, like no other single sensor can.
The sensors easily integrate with smart infrastructure to provide a connected corridor for CAV.
The featured video shows a Navtech Radar sensor on board a vehicle collecting raw radar data. This research was conducted by technology partner the Oxford Robotics Institute, a world-leading robotics research organisation.
Why Choose Navtech Radar's Sensors for Autonomous Vehicles?
- Connects with Smart Infrastructure
Connect smart infrastructure with Navtech's autonomous vehicle sensors to future-proof roads and enable full autonomy.
- No active moving parts
The sensors are suitable for fast moving vehicles as they themselves have no moving parts. This means they can be easily installed onto existing vehicles.
- Ideal for test routes
Infrastructure sensors are ideal for test routes, as they can provide behaviour analysis of autonomous vehicles, as well as regular traffic behaviour data.
- Easy to integrate
Fully ROS compatible.
