INVENTING FUTURE SENSING WITH RADAR SIGNAL PROCESSING
WHAT WE DO
UniqueSec AB is a radar signal processing expert company. We help you apply the state-of-the-art radar technology right to your specific application. Radars are coming to sense the world in a variety of applications such as level measurement in storage tanks, monitoring respiration, outdoor surveillance, presence detection and speed measurement.
PRODUCT & SERVICES
We provide our customers with affordable total solutions based on radar systems. This system composes of three main parts: a radar front-end, an embedded processing board and a software component. The software part includes the signal processing for extraction of desired features from raw radar signal and therefore is the brain of the system.
The seminal job we do at UniqueSec AB is to develop different signal processing algorithms in order to make our standalone radar system ready for use in your particular application.
• Consulting on the applicability of radar to your case,
• Establishing setups for radar measurement, i.e. acquiring radar signal, as well as for reference measurement if required,
• Developing advanced signal processing algorithms for processing of raw data from radar in order to provide you with particular information you need, for example type of an object, its distance, speed of movement, trajectory, etc.,
• Developing communication setup to send your desired information through cellular network or internet, so that you can monitor the situation,
• Finally, delivering a totally standalone hardware, based on an embedded architecture, so the radar measurement can be done independently.
OUR RADAR SYSTEM FOR DISTANCE/LEVEL MEASUREMENT
Level measurement is one of the important applications where radars can be used. Apart from radar technology, there are other techniques for doing level measurement, e.g. ultrasound and laser. In general, radar sensors have the ability to do better measurement in dusty or humid environments where lasers face problems. They do not have the limitations of ultrasound method regarding the range they can see. However, radars are often more costly.
UniqueSec AB level measurement product is a radar system for measuring the levels in silos. It uses a 24GHz radar front-end with an embedded antenna. Its advanced signal-processing algorithm enables cheap radars to measure the level of contents in silos. It can measure levels in silos with a height of up to 20 meters.
UniqueSec HB was founded in 2006 to provide technology and consulting in network security as well as hardware design for real-time implementation. In 2013, the activity of company shifted towards radars and UniqueSec AB was established. Proliferation of solid-state RF components led to the powerful emergence of radars in consumer applications. Automotive safety market, for instance, is growing incredibly in recent years and has brought radars to almost all cars. With this expanding market, UniqueSec AB started to develop the know-how based on small-scale low-powered radars which normally operate in high frequencies and wide bandwidth, enabling them to provide highly accurate measurement required in various applications.
Dr. Kasra Haghighi is the founder and CEO at UniqueSec AB. He got his PhD in communication engineering and cognitive radio from Chalmers university of technology and has been the winner of several national and international innovation and invention awards. He has also been involved in many startups in different high-tech areas including communication, networking, signal processing and radars. He has a long experience in hardware and embedded implementation such as VHDL, FPGA and ARM platforms. Dr. Haghighi's knowledge in detection and spectrum sensing, from his PhD research, has qualified him with a deep insight into radar signal processing and detection. He has been involved in numerous industrial projects in different sectors. He served as the reviewer of many international conferences and journals as well. His close contact with academia and research societies contributes to the very leading-edge research and development being carried out at UniqueSec AB.
Toktam Bagheri, board member, got her M.Sc. in communication engineering from Chalmers University of Technology in 2007. She has the experience of working as a researcher, team leader, project manager and CEO in her career. During her Master's and after that she was working in Autoliv AB, which is one of the pioneers in vehicle safety. Her focus was mainly on sensor fusion, accurate positioning and digital map. After Autoliv, she joined Trebax AB as a research engineer and signal-processing expert. She has developed signal-processing algorithms for FMCW radars for different applications. Her experience in radar and sensor fusion was needed at Volvo Cars Corporation. Thus, she continues in sensor fusion group at Volvo. Her experiences range from image processing, radar signal processing, FPGA/VHDL development, communication, networking, sensor fusion, tracking, digital map and autonomous driving to system integration.
Fahimeh Rafieinia has joined UniqueSec AB as International project manager and R&D signal processing engineer recently in 2015. She holds a M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering-Communication Systems from Ferdowsi University. She was granted the scholarship for Master’s program and also received the best paper award in ICEE 2014. Wireless communications and signal processing are two areas of her interest and she is very enthusiastic to extend her knowledge in radar domain as well.
