CEVA INTRODUCES UWB RADAR PLATFORM FOR AUTOMOTIVE CHILD PRESENCE DETECTION
RivieraWaves UWB Radar delivers robust sensing of object movements and breathing micro-movements for a wide suite of applications, including automotive child presence detection.
CEVA, Inc. recently announced that its RivieraWaves™ ultra-wideband (UWB) IP has been extended to support UWB-Radar for Child Presence Detection (CPD) as specified by Euro-NCAP and similar specifications in other regions.
CEVA technical experts will be available to discuss its UWB Radar solution at embedded world 2023, March 14-16, in Nuremberg, Germany. Visit CEVA's booth #3A-611 at the show to meet the CEVA team and interact with the latest wireless connectivity and smart sensing technology demos on display.
Child Presence Detection is a safety system designed to detect and alert if a child or pet is accidentally left behind in the vehicle.
The CEVA UWB Radar solution is an add-on software package to the CEVA RivieraWaves UWB PHY and MAC IP. The solution delivers robust Breath Per Minute (bpm) detection for CPD with less than 1bpm resolution. Leveraging a coherent demodulation architecture and advanced ranging algorithms, the CEVA RivieraWaves UWB with Radar delivers excellent distance and angle measurements in the complex in-cabin environment, enabling gesture recognition and intruder alarm features. The solution can be optimized for different environments, including a configurable number of antennas. Designed for coexistence with the Car Connectivity Consortium® (CCC) Digital Key, the solution permits the reuse of Digital Key UWB anchor hardware.
Beyond the car, the same UWB Radar technology can be used in applications requiring general Human Presence Detection, benefiting from the natural anonymity of radar sensing over alternatives such as vision-based detection.
