Acconeer awarded three design wins by ALPS ALPINE for presence detection in cars to a European premium car manufacturer

The radar technology company Acconeer AB has been chosen by ALPS ALPINE to deliver radar sensors for the use case presence detection in cars to a European premium car manufacturer. Acconeer estimates the total potential value of the design wins to US$ 9-12 million over three years starting in 2022. By "design win" Acconeer refers to that the company's radar sensor has been selected for use in a customer product, but it is not equivalent to that an order has been placed.

These are the first design wins in this area for Acconeer. ALPS ALPINE is a world-leading manufacturer of electronic components, modules, and systems for cars.

Acconeer's unique ultra-low power and high precision radar sensor will be included in several of ALPS ALPINE's products serving different use cases. The new design wins announced today are for the use case presence detection, which is driven by industry standards such as European and Australasian New Car Assessment Programs (Euro NCAP and ANCAP). They provide consumers with independent information on the level of safety offered by vehicles in the event of a severe accident. In other geographies, demand for sensor technology will be driven by legislation such as the US "Hot Cars Act".

Lars Lindell, CEO of Acconeer, comments: "We have teamed up with ALPS ALPINE for a couple of years, and we are very pleased that they have managed to win business in this important lifesaving use case. We look forward to many more design wins in the future."
