Secondly, the new chips are more capable, which means one or two of them can replace a fistful of the old gallium-arsenide kind.

Finally, their superior performance provides better resolution of objects on the road, making driving a lot safer and less accident-prone.

The long-range radar is also expected to help cars form electronic networks with one another and with the physical environment, leading to a more integrated transportation system.
