Radar Sensors for Smart City Applications Frequency Insights


The Radar Sensors for Smart City Applications market segmentation, based on frequency, includes 24 GHz, 10.5 GHz, and Others. 24GHz is expected to grow at a significant CAGR rate during the projected period. Many connected IoT products, including smart security cameras, air quality monitors, video doorbells, smart lighting, video conferencing systems, dashcams, and a wide range of contemporary appliances and electronics, now have 24GHz RADAR Sensors. Unlike traditional sensing technologies, RADAR technology offers many specific benefits for locating objects, sounds, and delivering data rapidly for processing.


This smart sensor has the ability to accurately detect an object's distance while simultaneously recognizing and following the object's movement in real time. The linked gadget uses the data from the RADAR to detect when an object is close enough to automatically alert the homeowner and instruct the built-in camera to start recording video. The RADAR sensing capabilities, together with functions like picture identification and data analysis, are what cause this series of occurrences.


January 2020:  InnoSenT GmbH is launching a new radar solution for motion detection. The IMD-2000 reliably detects the movements of persons and objects and thus enables automatic control, as required, for industrial applications. For the first time, the motion detector provides both speed and distance information. This is an important modification to the motion detector’s function, as it makes it easier to tailor the detection function to the specific application.


Radar Sensors for Smart City Applications, By Application Insights


The  Radar Sensors for Smart City Applications market data has been bifurcated by Application into Traffic Monitoring and Pedestrian (Crowd) Monitoring. Traffic Monitoring holds a largest market share during 2021. The smart city concept entails the use of numerous sensors to collect and digitize data. Traffic and pedestrian counts are two of the most important data sources. Officials can utilize this information for general city planning or for real-time traffic control. Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) refers to the systems that collect such data and control city lights.


Street cameras (direct measurement) and in-car sensors, as well as smartphones, are the most prevalent sources of traffic data (indirect measurement). The widespread use of cameras raises legitimate privacy concerns: cameras can be utilized as a surveillance device. Indirect measurements are inaccurate and create significant (up to a few minutes) data lag, particularly when dealing with traffic data.


Radars can relieve these worries. Despite reliable data, these sensors are unable to identify a person or a vehicle. Radars can provide dependable data for intelligent transportation systems, traffic lights, and intelligent streetlights. Thus, the demand for Radars Sensors is driving the market in Traffic monitoring and Pedestrian (Crowd) Monitoring.


December 2021:  In the latest report funded by the National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC), Development of Intelligent Multimodal Traffic Monitoring using Radar Sensor at Intersections, researchers Siyang Cao, Yao-jan Wu, Feng Jin and Xiaofeng Li of the University of Arizona have tackled the issue by developing a high-resolution radar sensor that can reliably distinguish between cars and pedestrians. This sensor also supplies the counts, speed, and direction of each moving target, no matter what the lighting and weather are like. In the future, they plan to further refine their model to interpret more complex data and be able to identify additional modes.
