Miniaturized sensor package fabrication for autonomous driving – an insight into the TINKER project

Leo Schranzhofer

Autonomous driving and self-driving cars represent one prominent example for the use of microelectronics and sensors, most importantly RADAR and LiDAR sensors. Their respective markets have a big potential, e.g. it is estimated that the market size of LiDAR in automotive will increase significantly in the next years. European Union´s H2020 funded TINKER project is set to develop a new reliable, accurate, functional, cost- and resource efficient pathway for RADAR and LiDAR sensor package fabrication based on AM. The presentation gives an overview of the TINKER project, its motivation and ambition as well as some insights into current developments.
