E-band Radars and Radar Sensors for Rail Applications

This ELVA’ blog article focuses on the use of millimeter-wave radars on railroads. Rail applications for radars include speed and range sensors for unmanned self-driving locomotives (also operating within industrial sites), assistance for shunting operations at rail stations, and safety application intended for preventing dead-end train collisions at stations and depots.


Millimeter Wave Marine Radar for Drone Boats (USV and ASV)

ELVA-1E-band marine radar provides improved situational awareness, autonomous or operator response to unexpected obstacles, and reliable performance. Its advanced digital technology is essential to the successful operation of an unmanned vessel and contributes to the overall safety and efficiency of maritime operations.

Internet on trains: 5G or Trackside Network for Train-to-Ground Communication?

Read ELVA-1’s article about the three weaknesses of 5G connectivity for trains. First, low data download speeds, second, dependence on train speeds, and third, lack of 5G coverage outside of densely populated areas. Low data download speeds are a major weakness of 5G, which is critical for remote video surveillance on trains. That’s why train operators are building dedicated trackside networks in the mm-wave frequency range.
