January 2020: Bosch debuted its long-range LIDAR sensor LRR4 for autonomous vehicles. The product features a detection range of 250 meters and is capable of recognizing up to 24 objects simultaneously. It is targeted for medium and close ranges in cities and on highways.
DENSO developed the Global Safety Package 3, an active security system designed to improve the environment-sensing capabilities of automobiles and raise vehicle safety in January 2022. The Global Safety Package combines the capabilities of a vision sensor and a millimeter-wave radar sensor to assist the driver in operating the vehicle safely. The millimeter-wave radar sensor uses radar to identify the shapes of road items, such as cars and guardrails, while the vision sensor uses a camera to identify the area in front of the vehicle.
