At CES 2022, Fisker is showcasing Fisker Intelligent Pilot, the ADAS platform featured in its Ocean SUV. It integrates four types of sensors: an surround-view camera suite, a camera-based driver-monitoring system and ultrasonic technology as well as Fisker’s proprietary Digital-Imaging Radar System. The OEM expects the system to launch in November 2022, coinciding with the expected production date of the Ocean SUV.
The SUV’s front-facing 8-megapixel camera provides a high resolution for sensing its surroundings, while its 360-degree camera system enables base-level object detection. Fisker’s Digital Code Modulation-based radar system uses five units positioned around the Fisker Ocean to confirm and enhance what the cameras see. The company claims it also provides enhanced perception in adverse weather conditions and excessive sun glare, and enables improved performance against analog radar systems.
The Fisker Digital Radar, for example, can locate vehicles at 200 meters (656 feet) and pedestrians at 80 meters (262 feet). It supports enhanced detection in environments where light-dark contrast is high, and can differentiate objects of varying sizes and speeds on highways. The radar is also capable of separating objects from backgrounds and detecting low-lying roadway obstructions. When Fisker Intelligent Pilot is engaged, an interior camera monitors for drowsiness and concentration to ensure the driver is attentive.
Fisker Intelligent Pilot is equipped on the Ocean Extreme and Ocean One trims as standard and incorporates a number of ADAS features, including 360-degree Surround View with 3D, Park My Car (an automatic parking spot finder), Park Assist with Wheel Guard, Adaptive Drive Control, Reverse Collision Mitigation, Evasive Steering Assist, Integrated Drive Assist, Traffic Jam Assist (with Integrated Drive Assist), Traffic Sign/Light Recognition, Front and Side Collision Warning, Lane Change Assist, Lane Keep Assist, Intelligent Speed Assist, Emergency Lane Departure Avoidance, and Blind Spot Monitoring.
