CUS320 is a sensor dedicated to low-speed maneuvering situations and enables different use-cases from driver warning to automated Parking.
The sensor measures the time of flight to an object (Echo-Localization principle). It sends an ultrasound wave (sound wave) and receives a signal (echo: wave reflection by an object) after a certain period of time. The time of flight is converted to a measured distance. Software for the ultrasonic signal processing (designed by Continental), interprets these measurements, and determines the appropriate actions to take.
