Tel Aviv Startup Arbe Robotics Wins Berlin’s Tech.AD Award
March 11, 2018 | Arbe Robotics, a company developing a high-resolution radar system to help vehicles detect and identify objects, is the winner of Berlin’s Automotive Tech.AD Award 2018, according to a statement from the Tel Aviv-based startup. Presented by we.CONECT, the award recognizes and honors exceptional projects. The company won for outstanding achievements in the autonomous driving industry, including being “the first to demonstrate ultra-high-resolution imaging radar.” Arbe Robotics founder and CEO Kobi Marenko said, “To be recognized as the winner by one of the leading automotive events is a true honor, and following the win, we will continue to develop and produce our revolutionary real-time 4D imaging radar.” Founded in 2015, Arbe Robotics’ 4D imaging technology provides ADAS, level 4, and 5 fully autonomous cars with high-resolution imaging radar that enables them to “see” the environment in any weather and lighting condition; from long, mid and short ranges in wide azimuth, elevation, range, and Doppler. The company raised an additional $9 million at the end of 2017 in a funding round led by equity crowdfunding platform OurCrowd and O.G. Tech Ventures. They will also use the money to invest in their first customer support center in Silicon Valley.
