Innovative Materials for ADAS Challenges​


Engineers of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) must strike a balance between performance and safety. 4D radar systems will bring additional challenges including higher RF reflection and ghost signals. This 60-minute technical Webinar presents innovative, durable, and dependable engineering polymer solutions to meet OEM requirements for radar and camera technology components.

Topics include:

  • Real-world examples of improved metal-to-plastic technology
  • New technology to manage transparency for higher GHz radars
  • Thermoplastics that can withstand extreme low-warpage and camera bracket challenges
  • How engineering polymers can help solve component reduction for mass and create cost reductions

A live Q&A will follow the technical presentation.
