Autoliv Inc. on Sept. 13 announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire a long-range radar technology to supplement its own short- and medium-range radar capabilities. The company says that its acquisition of ASTYX Communications and Sensors GmbH's 77-GHz digital beam-forming technology, including hardware and software, will enable full-speed adaptive cruise control, emergency braking, and forward collision warning. Autoliv’s own 24-GHz radar is primarily used for blind-spot detection, rear cross traffic alert, and collision mitigation braking. The two companies will exclusively cooperate to further develop, enhance, and expand the functionalities of both companies’ existing radar technologies for automotive and commercial truck applications.
