Delphi’s multimode electronically scanning radar (ESR) offers an affordable technology that enables adaptive cruise control (ACC) with collision warning, brake support, and more. The industry-first ESR uses proven solid-state technology and performance, packaging, and durability to help vehicle manufacturers offer consumers an ACC system that not only enhances safety and convenience but also improves fuel economy. Part of the ACC system in multiple 2010 vehicles, Delphi’s ESR replaces traditional multiple-beam radars that use mechanical scanning or fixed overlapping beams. By eliminating all moving parts, the radar is more resistant to vibration and reliable. The ESR’s wide, midrange coverage not only detects vehicles cutting in from adjacent lanes but also vehicles and pedestrians across the width of the equipped vehicle. Long-range coverage provides accurate range and speed data with effective object discrimination required to identify up to 64 targets in the vehicle’s path.
