HELLA , Oculii Establish Strategic Partnership

HELLA, one of the world´s automotive suppliers for radar, lighting, and electronic systems, and Oculii, a pioneer in advanced software solutions for radar technology, have established a strategic partnership to deliver high performance radar sensing and perception solutions for Level 2/3 ADAS and Automated Driving (AD) based on Oculii´s Virtual Aperture Imaging Software Technology and HELLA´s experience and leadership in automotive radar, the companies said.

Both parties will combine their complementary know-how and capabilities in their respective domains.

Oculii´s patented Virtual Aperture Imaging software technology significantly increases the angular resolution of a radar phased array — dramatically improving safety, reliability and efficiency of ADAS solutions today and autonomous driving vehicles of the future.

HELLA is a global, family owned company, listed on the stock exchange, with over 125 locations in some 35 countries. It specialises in innovative lighting systems and vehicle electronics and has been an important partner to the automotive industry and aftermarket for more than a century.

Oculii is developing high resolution imaging radars to enable the next generation of autonomous systems. Oculii´s proprietary Virtual Aperture Imaging radar software increases the angular resolution of any array through a phase encoded modulation scheme that enables a sensor to achieve higher resolution with more compute/memory as opposed to more physical transceiver elements.
