The key sensors used today on automobiles are RADAR and cameras, with ultrasonic technology playing a key role in short spans at lower velocities and LiDAR being utilized in autonomous driving. RADAR is extensively used as it has some exceptional features. RADAR can accurately detect the distance of an object. Long-range automotive RADARs can offer distance calculations on objects that are as far as 300 to 500 meters. RADAR enables essential measurements of parameters such as relative speed. Therefore, at the same time it delivers a measurement for speed and range..

The coronavirus pandemic significantly impacted the supply chain of automotive RADAR components to be used in safety systems across different vehicle types such as passenger and commercial.

In many aspects, the automotive industry is crucial for a robust global economy and the prosperity of a nation. The automotive industry is an essential component of economic growth of a nation and has extensive interconnections to upstream industries, such as chemicals, textiles, and steel, along with downstream industries such as mobility services, repair, and others. The automotive industry is labor-intensive and provides employment to thousands of workers. The automotive industry provides employment to around 14 million people in Europe, about 8 million in the U.S., and to approximately 5 million people in China.

This signifies the importance of the industry for a nation. The COVID-19 pandemic proved quite detrimental for the automotive sector. It has had a sudden impact on the global unified automotive industry. Indications include the interruption in export of Chinese automotive parts, huge manufacturing disruptions across Europe, and the shutting down of assembly plants in the U.S. This is placing an extreme pressure on an industry that is already managing a downshift in global demand.

The widespread outbreak of the novel coronavirus led to the sudden drop in import-export of non-essential items and only a small fraction of workforce was allowed to function in the factories. Further, the testing of systems was also impacted by the strict pandemic regulations. These caused a large supply-demand gap in the products and services related to automotive RADAR. The sales of automotive industry witnessed a drop.
