TI mass-producing UWB 76-81GHz mmWave radar sensors


The radar sensors, which will first appear in vehicles on the road in late 2018, to enable ADAS applications, which include long-, short- and medium-range radar.

Outside of ADAS, engineers are using the automotive-qualified AWR1642 sensor to detect free space and obstacles near doors and trunks, occupancy detection inside the cabin, intruder alert and smarter automated parking.

TI also offers a common software development kit (SDK) and design resources to help speed development time.

For example, the Vehicle Occupant Detection Reference Design provides a system-level overview and software examples for using the AWR1642 sensor to detect people inside a vehicle.
