UMAIN (Previous: HYOSUNG TECHNOLOGY) (CEO Kim Yeong-hwan, www.hyosungtech.co.kr) showcased its “HST-S1”, a micro radar sensor module for drones and robots, in the joint pavilion of the Mobile Technology Convergence Center (MTCC) at the world’s best IT technology exhibition ‘CES(Consumer Technology Show) 2016’ which runs Jan. 6-9 in Las Vegas Convention Center(LVCC).

The product is a broadband radar sensor for short distances. It possesses radar technology that has a range of up to 10 meters (maximum 15 meters) with 1.5-centimeter resolution. It can be used for autonomous mobile devices, such as robots and drones.

When it detects obstacles, it prints out detailed information, so developers and those who like DIY can easily use it. This product is the smallest among CMOS chip-based impulse radar products in a single board form. It is compatible with various devices, supporting I2C and UART interfaces.

The company also introduced detectors with broadband radar sensors for short distances. The demo version of HST-F1, an FMCW radar sensor for short distances, will be launched in the first half of this year.

HYOSUNG TECHNOLOGY CEO Kim Yeong-hwan said: “We are happy to showcase our ‘HST-S1′, a micro radar sensor module for drones and robots, at CES 2016. We will actively work to attract foreign investors at this exhibition.”

Since its foundation in 2012, the company has developed radar sensor products based on CMOS impulse radar chip source technology. For the second time in the world, it successfully commercialized an impulse radar.

MTCC prepared the joint pavilion at this exhibition and supported related domestic companies’ participation in CES 2016, promoting the infrastructure project of smart drone application technology. It is mainly focused on the competitiveness reinforcement business of new mobile convergence in the global market.

Held annually in January and owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), CES 2016 is the world’s largest exhibition to see the latest global trends in electronics and IT industry in one spot.

AVING News has been sending its reporters to CES for 11 years to introduce the new technologies and products.  After the local coverage and research, AVING News will hold ‘CES 2016 Review Conference’ in AVING Studio, Korea on January 28th.
