perisens GmbH was founded in 2009 as spin-off of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and is a dedicated team of RF and signal processing specialists located near Munich, Germany. We offer services and products in the field of radar technology and communication systems in frequency ranges up to 90GHz.
Dr. Florian Pfeiffer
Chief Executive Officer & Founder
Florian Pfeiffer, leads perisens, developing the company’s strategic direction and vision. Before founding perisens, he has served in the automotive industry. He is a technical expert in radar and communication technologies and is giving a lecture about automotive radar technology at the University of Applied Sciences in Ingolstadt.
Prof. Dr. Erwin Biebl
Technical consultant & Founder
Erwin Biebl has over 20 years experience in millimeter wave and automotive radar technology. He is head of the institute for microwave engineering at the Technical University of Munich.
Our CEO Dr. Florian Pfeiffer gives you insights about automotive radar technology covering the following topics:
- Radar as key technology for automotive sensing
- Radar fundamentals
- Measurement principles for distance, velocity (Doppler) and direction of arrival
- Automotive sensor performance (24 vs. 77/79GHz, radar vs. other sensor technologies)
- Fundamentals of signal processing (from the input signals to high-level objects)
- Integration of radar sensors into a vehicle
- Radar calibration and radar cover (radome) measurement techniques
Next one-day workshop:
14th March 2019 at Gerotron in Martiensried (learn more)

Happy New Year
Thank you for your confidence and the collaboration on the same wavelength. For 2019 we wish you nothing but the best and many innovative ideas in all frequency ranges.
The right part of the picture above shows a cross polarized 77GHz radar image measured with our scanning radar system. Cross polarized means that transmit and receive antennas have orthogonal polarization (here Tx is linear vertical and Rx is linear horizontal). Thus, the transmitted electromagnetic wave can only be received if a polarization conversion occurs.
In the radar image, it can be clearly seen that the diagonal edges of the christmas tree are visible as they rotate the polarization angle. On the other hand the metal surface is completly invisible as the wave reflects without change in polarization.
In practice, polarimetric radars can acquire additional information which might be used in future automotive radar sensors to improve object classification.
CEPT opens Wifi Ch36-48 for in-vehicle usage
CEPT/ECC follows our proposal to open the Wifi band 5150-5250 MHz for in-vehicle use with a maximum transmit power of 25 mW (EIRP). Thus, automotive Wifi can be shifted from the crowded Short Range Device band (channels 149-169) to the dedicated Wifi channels 36-48. More Information on CEPT.
