With ScaleUp 360° Automotive Imaging Systems Europe coming up, Ian Podkamien, Head of Automotive Business Development at Vayyar Imaging gave us an exclusive interview in advance. He has joined Vayyar as Director of Business Development in 2016, focused on the automotive, robotics, safety (industry 4.0) and mobility markets. Ian oversees partnerships with industry leaders in all of these markets and helps integrate Vayyar technology into their products, solutions and services.

Vayyar Imaging
Vayyar Imaging is a global leader in 4D radar imaging technology, providing highly advanced sensors to a wide variety of industries and the first to close the gap between the robustness of radars and the resolution of LiDAR. Vayyar started with a vision to develop a more effective way of detecting early-stage breast cancer using radio frequency technology. As our technology matured, we created new opportunities including automotive, smart home, robotics, retail, RF testing and medical. Our intelligent sensors can see through walls and objects and track and map everything happening in an environment in real-time. Unlike other products that rely on cameras and optics, Vayyar’s sensors do not collect any optic data, protecting users’ privacy at all times. Our state-of-the-art chip covers imaging and radar bands from 3-81Ghz, with up to 72 transceivers in each chip and an integrated high-performance DSP. Vayyar’s multi-antenna sensor can produce unprecedented levels of accuracy, enabling high resolution 4D point-cloud images. Sensors work in any environmental conditions and are unaffected by line-of-sight, lighting and weather conditions, so they monitor even in times when cameras cannot. Our sensors are low-cost and multi-functional, offering an affordable sensing solution for a variety of applications. Vayyar’s mission is to continue expanding the potential of consumer radar, so we can deliver the next generation of sensing technology that is miniature, affordable and versatile enough to impact everyone’s lives.
