Advanced Algorithms 4 Radar will be located in hall 2 booth 521 during its stay at embedded world ’23. It will be showcasing its latest in predictive maintenance radar sensing. Discussions will be provided on the use of predictive maintenance radar sensing in Industry 4.0.

Its solutions can be applied in various industries, such as manufacturing, transportation, energy, and healthcare, to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and increase safety.

For example, in manufacturing, predictive maintenance radar sensing can help optimize production schedules and reduce machine downtime, while in healthcare, it can help ensure medical equipment is functioning optimally and reduce the risk of equipment failure during critical procedures.

Overall, predictive maintenance radar sensing is a critical component of Industry 4.0, enabling companies to achieve greater efficiency, reduce costs, and improve safety and reliability through proactive maintenance.

Multipurpose Radars

Globalization and competitiveness are forcing companies to rethink and to innovate their production processes. It means using new production technology, new machinery, new materials, and new inputs.

The industry is undergoing transformation and evolution toward complete digitization, applying the intelligence of production processes to ensure high efficiency and increase quality. We are in the fourth industrial revolution where knowledge has become a crucial input. A4Radar Sensors allow digital transformation processes, connecting man and technology to improve efficiency and increasing productivity to optimize management on collaborative value chains, becoming factories in highly connected entities, with different sensors being able to interact with one another and adjust asset performances.

Industry 4.0 Solutions

A4Radar Industrial Solutions drive autonomous and highly cognitive ecosystems, providing radar-based sensors that enable the collection of data for learning systems and automatic decision making with acquisition and processing in real time to reliably detect moving or stationary targets, enable manufacturers to rapidly respond to shifting environment, adapting their resources, turning processes more efficient and profitable.

Radar Systems proposed are optimized for high accuracy and ultra-low power, delivered as one package solution, will enable easy integration as a sensor into any customer application or as a stand-alone module, providing robust performance against interferences and remaining uncompromised by adverse ambient environmental (smoke, fog, dust, mist ...) or poor light conditions.
