The Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) offers state-of-the-art safety to passengers.
The system is called Fisker Intelligent Pilot.
Safety and related technologies are evolving at a rate that matches electric vehicle development. These EVs provide an ideal platform for autonomous driving capabilities which in turn, require a slew of systems to keep the occupants safe and the vehicle on the road. Fisker has just introduced its industry-first, Digital Code Modulation-based radar system at the 2022 edition of the CES.
The first point to note is that this 4D digital imaging radar system will be included with all new Fisker Ocean SUVs assembled and delivered. From the $68,999 Fisker Ocean Extreme and Fisker Ocean One launch edition, it will be activated. All other versions including the $37,499 Ocean Sport will offer the possibility to have the system activated via OTA updates.
The system itself consists in four types of sensors. It features a surround-view camera suite, a camera-based driver-monitoring system, ultrasonic sensor technology, and a Digital-Imaging Radar System.
The Digital Code Modulation-based radar system has five units positioned around the SUV as a way to corroborate what the cameras see. It can also deliver additional information is the event of bad weather. Other advantages include the ability to distinguish elements in high light-dark contrast such as in tunnels, as well as differentiate objects of varying sizes and speeds on highways. Finally, it can also identify low-lying roadway obstructions.
Production of the Fisker Ocean SUV begins in November of 2022.
