With the introduction of the 77GHz radar sensors, now Hella – one of the world’s largest suppliers of radar sensors – is further expanding its leading position in the field of radar technology. For example, series production of the latest 77GHz radar technology for an international automobile manufacturer has now started at the HELLA electronics plant in Hamm.
The technology was first brought into series production in the truck sector last spring. On the basis of numerous successfully acquired major orders both for passenger cars, including one from a German premium customer, and for trucks, further production starts will follow in the near future. HELLA is also already developing the second 77GHz radar generation, which will go into series production for another German premium manufacturer in 2024.
“With our innovative 77GHz radar sensors, we are continuing to drive the trend towards automated driving. By using highly efficient hardware and smart software, we are taking radar-based 360-degree environment perception to the next level and are thus driving safe mobility,” said Björn Twiehaus, a member of the HELLA Management Board and one of the responsible persons for the Electronics division of HELLA.
