4D Imaging Radar Firm Expands Into APAC Region

By Joel Davies -

Vayyar Imaging, a provider of 4D imaging radar, is set to open a new office in Tokyo, Japan, as the company continues its expansion in the APAC region, primarily in the senior care and automotive industries.

Founded in 2011, Vayyar started with a vision of developing a more effective way of screening for early-stage breast cancer using radio frequency technology. Developing from that point, Vayyar is now a provider of 4D imaging radar for applications in senior care, automotive, security, smart home and robotics. The company is based in Israel, employs over 250 people and has $189m in funding.

The firm has hand-picked a team of industry experts who will build Vayyar’s brand and business portfolio whilst advancing existing commercial engagements in the APAC region. The office will specialize in business development, system application and marketing.

“Establishing an office in Japan is a vital step in our global expansion, enabling us to deepen our existing relationships with many of the world’s leading healthcare and automotive players and to redefine numerous other verticals”, said Raviv Melamed, Vayyar Co-founder and CEO. “We look forward to continuing our close collaborations with Japanese partners, improving safety using best-in-class imaging radar technology”.

Vayyar’s senior care solutions are deployed in facilities and private homes around the world, providing real-time activity monitoring that supports automatic fall detection and a wide range of behavioural insights. Sensors mounted on walls or ceilings constantly monitor the surroundings across an ultra-wide field of view in all conditions, including pitch darkness and dense steam, making them ideal for use in bathrooms and bedrooms.

Elsewhere, Vayyar’s automotive platform enables advanced safety applications across the In-Cabin Monitoring Systems (ICMS), ADAS/ARAS, and AV domains. Built around a high-performance radar-on-chip array of up to 48 transceivers, it delivers resolution across an ultra-wide field of view in all road conditions, whilst protecting user privacy.

“We are very proud to be advancing Vayyar’s goal of providing affordable, multifunctional radar-on-chip platforms to Japan’s leading automakers and suppliers and senior care providers, which can leverage our uniquely versatile technology to protect some of society’s most vulnerable people”, Melamed added.
