The previous two editions of the ADAS Sensor Suite Design Series (front-end & interior monitoring), forecasted that the future of the ADAS sensor suite will embody a full external and internal view of the vehicle, its occupants and its surroundings. It is equally clear that the rear facing implementation of this sensor suite is becoming an increasing area of focus for automotive OEMs and tiers. Implementing a rear-collision based ADAS system is another enabler of proactive and protective measures to enhance the safety of the driver and passengers of the impacted vehicle. Such features could include adjustments to the driver's seating position, automatic closing of the windows and sunroof, pre-tensioning of the seatbelt systems, automatic triggering of hazard lights, and warnings allowing the driver to change lanes if safe to do so.

ADAS systems, regardless of location, will need to incorporate styling as desired by OEMs and will require specific material functionalities, i.e. radar absorption from materials such as LNPTM STAT-KON™ compound; the IR transparency and high heat resistance provided by ULTEM™ resin, or the high dimensional stability performance of NORYL GTX™ resin: see page 2 for a full product line card. SABIC has the experience and technical knowledge to assist your team through the stages of system design, prototyping and testing. We invite you to contact one of our technical centers to learn more about the benefits of our LNP™ copolymers and compounds, and our NORYL™ and ULTEM™ resins, as well as our application development services that include material recommendations and sampling, tooling review and design suggestions, material data for design simulations, onsite technical support for mold trials and processing troubleshooting.
