Metawave is revolutionizing the future of radar sensing for highly automated driving, and wireless communications for 5G.

Leveraging machine learning and artificial intelligence for analog radars, Metawave is building SPEKTRA, the first beamsteering radar system capable of distinguishing between objects in difficult driving scenarios and in all-weather conditions -- making cars safer and smarter. The company has been delivering its Proof of Concept (POC) to leading automakers and Tier 1 transportation providers since 2019, demonstrating its beamforming and beamsteering capabilities in today’s difficult driving scenarios, including enhancing automated features like cut in / cut out, automated braking, lane assist, and adaptive cruise control. For more information on or to join our POC program, please email us at info@metawave.co.

Metawave is also developing its state-of-the-art TURBO active repeaters and ECHO passive relays to enable faster, more efficient 5G and fixed wireless deployments to bring high-speed connectivity to billions of users as they connect in bustling cities, busy office buildings, crowded concerts and sporting events, and under-serviced pockets all around the world. The company announced demonstrated results with DOCOMO in 2018, showing how its ECHO platform boosts signals for better communication speed and coverage using 5G. Metawave is working with leading telecos to demonstrate both ECHO and TURBO, giving 5G users faster, economical, and reliable connectivity.
