TEL AVIV — Arbe Robotics Ltd. (NASDAQ: ARBE) a global leader in Perception Radar Solutions, announced that HiRain Technologies, the leading Chinese ADAS Tier 1 supplier, was selected by the Port of RiZhao in Shandong Province to provide perception radars based on Arbe’s chipset.
The deployment has been implemented on FAW Trucks and on automated guided vehicle (AGVs), providing autonomous driving capabilities, advanced perception, and true safety. The first deployment started at the RiZhao port and is expected to expand to additional ports across China.
Earlier this year, HiRain announced that it is undertaking major OEM and autonomous driving projects with the Radar Solution it developed using Arbe’s Perception Radar Chipset, projected to reach mass production by 2023.
According to analyst firm IHS Markit, autonomous trucks will transform the logistics industry, reducing the cost significantly of transporting goods. The autonomous trucking industry is looking to technology to increase truck safety since many collisions are caused by distracted or impaired drivers.
Autonomous trucking technology is designed to provide increased safety on the road and in industrial environments by providing a 360-degree surround view of vehicles and enables a faster reaction time than a human driver.
“The industry is anticipating that trucks will lead the autonomous vehicle revolution, since they require the highest standards of safety, and have the biggest need for an advanced sensor solution due to the collision history of trucks and the high risk associated with the size of commercial vehicles,” says Kobi Marenko, CEO of Arbe. “We are proud to be selected by HiRain to provide our perception radar chipset to its autonomous trucks infrastructure including the latest deployment at shipping ports across China, delivering high safety levels in every environment condition.”
