What’s the Difference Between RFID and RADAR Technology?

By Aaron Benick on July 29, 2019

In previous posts, we’ve looked at the difference between RADAR and LiDAR, and between RADAR and ultrasonic sensors. While there are significant differences between these three types of sensors, they have one thing in common: They are all used to increase safety by identifying and locating both still and moving obstacles relative to the path of a vehicle. RADAR sensors do this by emitting radio waves. LiDAR uses high frequency laser light. Ultrasonic sensors emit high-pitched sound waves.

By Nate Jensen on July 18, 2019

Developing smart vehicles requires a tradeoff: As the vehicle gets more intelligent, it also gets more complex. You can look no further than the number and kinds of sensors newer vehicles now come equipped with to appreciate just how complex. These vehicles that once started as little more than an engine, four wheels, and some brakes have become highly sophisticated computers on wheels.

What’s the Difference Between RADAR and LIDAR?

By Aaron Benick on March 12, 2019

If you’ve been following the news on self-driving cars, you may have noticed that many of the autonomous vehicle makers are using LIDAR (Light Imaging Detection And Ranging) for on-board object detection. For many autonomous automobile applications, LIDAR is a better choice than the other commonly used object-detection technology, RADAR (Radio Detection And Ranging). But when it comes to high-quality, affordable object detection that needs to stand up to rough environments, RADAR is a wise choice. Here’s why:
