The Fisker Ocean electric SUV will have state-of-the-art safety features including the world’s first digital radar including ADAS and FI-Pilot.
Henrik Fisker arrived this week in Europe to walk the production line of the Fisker Ocean at Magna Steyr ahead of Mobile World Congress on Monday. Magna, a manufacturing partner, published a joint press release last month about a collaboration with Fisker to develop an Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), which will be applied to the Fisker Ocean SUV expected to launch in November 2022.
Fisker Ocean Safety
The Fisker Ocean will be equipped with an Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), offering state-of-the-art safety to drivers and passengers. The ADAS has multiple ultrasonic sensors, including market-leading cameras, five Fisker Digital Radars, and sophisticated driver monitoring technology. The ADAS will include the first-to-market digital imaging radar technology never yet seen on a production vehicle. The digital imaging radar coined “ICON RADAR,” was co-developed with Uhnder a technology startup, with the first digital imaging single-chip radar solution for the automotive marketplace.
The Uhnder Digital Radar claims to detect a rich 4D environment tracking thousands of objects and predicts what they will do next at 50+ fps with unprecedented resolution. According to Fisker, this technology can distinguish its surroundings in environments of high light-dark contrast, such as in tunnels and on bridges (pictured above), differentiate objects of varying sizes and speeds on highways, and separate objects from backgrounds and detect low-lying roadway obstructions.
Fisker FI-Pilot Sensors
The biggest benefit of this advanced technology is offering drivers and passengers of the Fisker Ocean state-of-the-art safety. The complete safety feature set that makes up the advanced 4D radar, sensors, and cameras surrounding the vehicle is being offered as Fisker Intelligent Pilot (Fi-Pilot). The Fisker Intelligent Pilot will be standard on the Fisker Ocean Extreme and Fisker Ocean One (launch edition).
Comes Standard on Fisker Ocean One and Extreme
Fisker Intelligent Pilot features standard on the Fisker Ocean Extreme and Fisker Ocean One include:
- 360-degree Surround View with 3D
- Door Opening Warning
- Park My Car – automatic parking spot finder
- Park Assist with Wheel Guard – parallel parking aid
- Adaptive Drive Control
- Automatic Emergency Braking – Premium
- Reverse Collision Mitigation
- Evasive Steering Assist
- Integrated Drive Assist
- Traffic Jam Assist (with Integrated Drive Assist)
- Driver Drowsiness and Attention Warning
- Traffic Sign/Light Recognition
- Front and Side Collision Warning
- Lane Change Assist
- Lane Keep Assist
- Intelligent Speed Assist
- Emergency Lane Departure Avoidance
- Blind Spot Monitoring
This futuristic technology could be a giant leap toward Level 5 autonomous driving, which is talked about heavily in the media. We think Fisker, Magna, and Uhnder have something special here when it comes to safety. We look forward to reviewing it firsthand later this year when we take delivery of our Fisker Ocean One.

I saw a report recently saying that conventional driver assistance systems don’t perform well at night. Do you know if digital radar will perform better? I see where it performs well in high contrast light/dark conditions, but I’m not sure that this is the same as night driving.
Hi Alan, Short answer. Yes! It’s first of its kind in a production car, but radar has been used in a lot of things from airplanes to bats (yes, those things that fly around in the dark at night). Uhnder has a video on their site that states, their radar will work “across all light and weather conditions.” We have to take Uhnder’s word for it, until we can test out the Fisker Ocean for ourselves to see the digital radar in action. Thanks for stopping by and please make sure to follow us on Twitter for updates.
Thanks for the reply. And I do follow you and all things Fisker on Twitter. I signed up this week just for that reason.
