An innovative, high-performance corner radar sensor, DRVEGRD 169 from smartmicro generates a fine grid for detecting and separating objects within its field of view. Designed to be integrated with driving and autonomous platforms, this radar enhances safety by detecting objects to avoid collisions, triggering warning signals, and supporting automated safety functions.
Four dimensions - range, speed, azimuth, and elevation angle
Operation modes, antennas, and frequencies (77 GHz to 81 GHz) all user selectable
Blind and misalignment diagnosis, interference suppression
Plug-and-play 360° sensor data fusion
Multi-mode corner radar for on-road and industrial applications
Adjustable operation modes – a 79 GHz (77 GHz to 81 GHz) corner radar with adjustable, software-defined operation modes, antennas, and frequencies, to deliver the field of view required by your application
Cutting-edge components – including NXP 16nm-FinFET radar MCU S32R29 and RF CMOS radar transceiver TEF82xx
High performance -DRVEGRD 169s processing power delivers an increased output of point clouds and higher resolution – targeting ASIL-B (SEooC) and NCAP
Robust and reliable – resilient design means that the sensor maintains high performance in challenging weather and critical environments

Safety is a critical concern when it comes to industrial automation and autonomous driving. Delivering highly accurate real-time object detection, DRVEGRD 169 is an advanced safety solution for robot platforms, ensuring that they are equipped for human collaboration.
According to the National Safety Council, in the United States, there are 50,000 collisions in car parks and garages annually, resulting in over 60,000 injuries and more than 500 deaths. Much of this is attributed to the false sense of safety that some drivers feel when driving at lower speeds. DRVEGRD 169 reliably detects all objects around the vehicle, including those invisible to, or not noticed by, the driver, increasing safety by reducing the chance of collisions.
15% of fatal accidents on construction sites in Germany in 2019 were caused by collisions with moving heavy construction vehicles. Reliable 360° coverage around these vehicles ensures awareness of objects in blind areas, therefore significantly improving safety.

Level Five Supplies is pleased to offer finance as a payment option, iur appointed partners can work with you to make equipment purchase more straightforward.
There are many reasons to consider using finance:
Improves Cash Flow: When you finance your equipment, your cash isn’t tied up in the equipment. Instead, it’s free for other investments that will grow your business, produce income, and ensure the equipment you acquire earns profits over its lifetime.
Preserves Other Lines of Credit: Tomorrow can bring many opportunities. Financing equipment means you’ll have the credit available (either from the bank or other sources) to take advantage of future opportunities.
Hedges against inflation: Your monthly payment remains the same over the term of the lease or loan. Money paid later in the term usually have less purchasing power than those paid at the beginning of the term…so you pay for today’s equipment needs with tomorrow’s lower-value currency.
Provides 100% financing: Even “soft costs” such as training, shipping, installation, and maintenance agreements can usually be included. So you can rest easy knowing that these associated costs won’t disrupt your cash flow.
Simplifies equipment changes: Hiring additional workforce? Increasing efficiency? Additional equipment can easily be added to your existing loan or lease. Or, if you’re trying to stay ahead of the competition by staying ahead of technologies, the equity in your financed equipment can be applied toward the loan or lease of new equipment. These options solve the problems of obsolescence – and make your job easier.
Eliminates hidden charges: You have no compensating balances, no closing costs, and no blanket liens or other restrictive covenants that banks use to increase customers’ cost. What you see is what you get.
Offers excellent rates: Our finance partner rates are highly competitive.
Saves on taxes: Depending on the type of finance agreement you select, as much as 100% of your payments may be tax deductible.
Offers many payment programs: Our finance partners work for you, not us. You choose the type of loan or lease that best fits your needs, and you select the length of the loan or lease term.
The finance agreement is between you and the lender, and we don’t take commission or referral fees – but we’ve done the preparatory work of allocating a broker for the US, and another for Europe, explaining the technology, validating supplier products and explaining how the technology will be used so your application process is simplified and focused entirely on the financials.
The initial part of the process usually takes less than an hour and means that you can spread the cost of a higher value purchase of equipment like this over several months or even years, allowing you to better plan your project or department budgets, but also means you can get what you need over the coming years, not just what you can afford today.
