FABRICATION OF SENSOR PACKAGES ENABLED BY ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

Project description

Cost- and resource-efficient sensor packaging for autonomous and self-driving cars

The use of microelectronics and sensors (such as RADAR and LiDAR sensors) in autonomous driving and self-driving cars is essential. As the market is expected to grow, the further miniaturisation and safety of such sensor packages is necessary. What’s more, the weight and power consumption of such instruments is causing a rising demand for high-value and high-performance RADAR and LiDAR systems for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and robotic cars. The EU-funded TINKER project will create a new cost-affordable and resource-efficient method for RADAR and LiDAR sensor package production for the European automotive and microelectronics industry. The method is based on additive manufacturing and inline feedback control mechanisms ensuring high throughput, flexibility, improved automation, accuracy and reliability, as well as a significant reduction in rejection rates.
