ZF Friedrichshafen AG has acquired approximately 45% of the shares in Astyx Communication & Sensors GmbH. Astyx was founded in Ottobrunn near Munich in 1997 and develops and produces ultrahigh-frequency radar sensors and modules for the automotive and other industries.

“After branching out into LIDAR technology last year, we’re now expanding our research and development activities in another key technology area for environmental and object detection,” said Dr. Stefan Sommer, ZF’s CEO, explaining ZF’s investment in Astyx. “Astyx radar technology ideally complements our other radar solutions currently utilised for driver assistance functions such as distance control. The fusion of radar, LIDAR and camera sensors can deliver environmental detection functionality essential for advanced safety and autonomous driving.”

Astyx develops and produces sensors for short and long-range radars. Radar sensors work in a similar way to ultrasound. The difference is that they transmit bundled electromagnetic radiation instead of ultrasound signals which can then detect objects as well as their associated distance and speed. Modern radars have the capability to achieve a high-resolution in terms of detection, position and determining the motion of people and objects down to the centimeter.
