Ainstein Launches New IoT Radar Product Family – WAYV; WAYV Air to be Showcased at CES 2020

New Radar-based Sensors Enhance Safety and Performance over Existing Solutions

LAS VEGAS, CES 2020, Jan. 6, 2020 – Ainstein, a leader in designing and building intelligent radar systems, announces a new line of radar modules specifically designed for use in static, fixed mounted applications like traffic management, surveillance and security, space utilization, and building automation.

The first WAYV family release includes three sensors:

WAYV Air 

WAYV Air is based on 60GHz radar sensing technology and features a compact form factor,  low cost and power consumption. It’s the ideal sensor for detecting and tracking people in both indoor and outdoor environments. This sensor will help to enable smart building related applications such as building automation, space utilization, and safety and security.

WAYV and WAYV Pro

WAYV and WAYV Pro are mid- and long-range radar sensors with built-in high performance radar processors and proprietary advanced radar processing algorithms that can reliably detect and track vehicles and pedestrians in challenging light and weather conditions. WAYV and WAYV Pro are perfect candidates for surveillance, intelligent traffic management, and other smart city related applications.

Ainstein will showcase its WAYV Air radar module at this year’s CES, January 7-10, 2020 in Las Vegas. To arrange a demo with Ainstein, please contact hi@ainstein.ai.

“Ainstein is continuously re-inventing how radar technology can be deployed to supplement and replace other technologies, as well as how it can enable new applications entirely,” said Andrew Boushie, Ainstein’s Vice President of Strategy and Partnerships. “The new solutions announced today break new ground in the performance of their respective functions.” 

WAYV Radar Sensors  Superior to Other Sensing Solutions 

Ainstein’s WAYV IoT family features short-, mid-, and long-range sensors. These sensors enable users to track and analyze the flow of pedestrians and vehicles in a variety of situations.

In a retail environment, WAYV sensors track the flow of customers through a store. This data enables managers to optimize store layouts to increase sales. In hotel/motel, industrial or office environments, WAYV sensors provide valuable insights around space utilization and can even enable emergency personnel to know exactly where people are located, facilitating rescue.

WAYV sensors address privacy concerns with tracking sensors since they don’t identify specific individuals or use facial recognition software. The sensors establish a view of activity and have superior range, resolution, and field-of-view. Unlike existing sensors that use ultrasonic or other technologies, installers may deploy WAYV sensors behind the ceiling, improving aesthetics and reducing privacy concerns. One new WAYV sensor can provide more information reliably and cover a wider area than several ultrasonic sensors.
