Subterranean Radar

WaveSense’s ultra-wide band radar uses reflections of underground features to generate baseline maps and then matches current radar reflections to those maps to determine a vehicle’s location and position with centimeter level accuracy.


Mapping & Tracking

WaveSense maps the environment below the road by combining radar data with GPS tags. Tracking is then performed while the vehicle is in motion by matching the current scan in the prior map.


Path to New ADAS Features & Automotive Grade AVs

WaveSense enables in-demand ADAS features on passenger vehicles, such as autonomous parking and active lanekeeping. WaveSense's subterranean radar maps and tracks to static features that are uncorrelated with those that LIDAR and cameras match to. With the addition of subsurface data to above-ground camera and LIDAR sensor information, self-driving cars now have a complete toolkit to work with when making driving decisions. As a result, WaveSense succeeds and fails in uncorrelated ways, making the likelihood of a common point of failure vanishingly small.

WaveSense's ground-penetrating radar sits discretely underneath a vehicle and can be easily incorporated into existing vehicle designs. The sensor itself is compact - about the size and thickness of two laptops. It's also inexpensive, costing a fraction of other autonomous vehicle systems.

No Lines, No Problem

WaveSense operates without having to reference road markings, meaning it functions perfectly when road lines are not visible. It also works when road markings are confusing, such as on highways under construction.

Compact & Inexpensive

WaveSense’s UHF sensor is roughly the size of two small laptops and is discretely mounted underneath the vehicle. It also carries minimal additional cost relative to other sensor systems.

Latitudinal and Longitudinal Precision, Even at Highway Speeds

WaveSense is able to keep autonomous vehicles centered on the road within 3-5cm crosstrack and 3-15cm along track (3cm in parking lot, 15cm at highway speeds).

Accurate in Any Road or Weather Conditions

WaveSense’s ground-penetrating radar technology works through snow, leaves, heavy rain, hail, fog, and any other conditions that obscure lane markings and cause other autonomous vehicle technologies to fail.
