Bobcat partners with radar company

Doosan Bobcat North America announced it has partnered with Ainstein, a radar technologies company headquartered in Lawrence, Kan., to develop next-generation radar sensor systems for Bobcat equipment. “Through this partnership, Ainstein and Doosan Bobcat North America will collaborate to create radar-based sensing solutions to detect objects on jobsites,” the company said. “The radar system developed by Ainstein collects object position data like range, azimuth, elevation and doppler information to provide real-time alerts to operators by incorporating a combination of mmWave radar, sensor fusion and artificial intelligence. This technology will enable obstacle avoidance solutions and future technologies that support autonomous operations.”
