Acconeer has now shipped more than 100 000 modules with the A111 radar sensor since the company launched its first module in December 2018. Since then, the company has released a range of popular modules where a radar sensor is combined with a microprocessor (MCU) and other supporting components.
Acconeer's A1 pulsed coherent radar sensor is used in an electrical car model from one of the top two American high-volume car makers for the use case access control, which allows touchless opening of the trunk of a car.
