Unleashing the potential of radar with 4D imaging – An interview with Vayyar


An interview with Raviv Melamed, CEO and Co-Founder of Vayyar Imaging, Cédric Malaquin, Technology & Market Analyst, specialized in RF devices & technologies within the Power & Wireless division at Yole Développement (Yole) and Dr. Stéphane Elisabeth, Technology & Cost Analyst from System Plus Consulting.


The automotive radar market was valued above $5B in 2019 and is poised for growth of 11% by 2025, according to the latest radar report from Yole Développement (Yole): Status of the Radar Industry: Players, Applications & Technology Trends.

It’s fascinating to see there is still room for innovation in a so-called mature market. 4D radar imaging is the next step in automotive radar that will enhance assisted driving features and will help to enable automated driving. Beside automotive, there is a strong interest in radar-based sensing technology for other market verticals, such as industrial, consumer and even medical. Market opportunities for the 3 segments combined are estimated to reach $4.4B by 2025. In a market with such growth, multiple companies have developed innovative and differentiated products.

One of those is Vayyar, an Israeli based startup company, that has been developing a 4D radar imaging sensor over many years. Initially applied for medical purposes, the sensor has been adapted for automotive and can now be used for in- or out-door car applications, from vital sign monitoring to blind spot detection. This technology has been deeply analyzed by System Plus Consulting, sister company of Yole in a new report: Vayyar VYYR2401 4D UWB Radar Imaging SoC.


For better insight, Cédric Malaquin, Technology & market analyst at Yole, and Stéphane Elisabeth, Cost analyst at System Plus Consulting, interviewed Raviv Melamed, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of Vayyar Imaging, to discover the full potential of the 4D imaging Radar Sensor. Indeed, the domain of applications is not restricted to only medical or automotive but could be extended to the consumer world.

Stéphane Elisabeth (SE): Please describe your position and mission at Vayyar to our readers?

Raviv Melamed (RM): Hi, I’m Raviv, the CEO and co-founder of Vayyar Imaging. Vayyar started with a vision to develop a more effective way of detecting early-stage breast cancer using radio frequency technology. As our technology matured, we created additional opportunities including solutions for senior care, automotive and smart buildings. Our 4D radar imaging sensors can see through walls & objects and track & map everything happening in an environment in real-time. Unlike other products that rely on cameras and optics, Vayyar’s sensors do not collect any optic data, ensuring users’ privacy at all times.

Vayyar’s mission is to continue expanding the potential of consumer radar, so we can deliver the next generation of sensing technology that is miniature, affordable and versatile enough to impact everyone’s lives, enabling a safer world.
