Short-Range Radar (SRR) Reference Design Using AWR1642

Description

The TIDEP-0092 reference design provides a foundation for short-range radar (SRR) applications using the AWR1642 evaluation module (EVM). This design allows the estimation and tracking of the position (in the azimuthal plane) and velocity of objects in its field of view up to 80 m,  travelling as fast as 90kmph.  The AWR1642 is configured to be a multi-mode radar, meaning that, while it tracks objects at 80m, it can also generate a rich point cloud of objects at 20m, so that both cars at a distance, and smaller obstacles close-by can be detected.

Features
  • Single-chip radar for SRR applications
  • Detect objects (such as cars and motorcycles) up to 80 m away with range resolution of 35 cm
  • Antenna field of view ±60° with angular resolution of approximately 15°
  • Source code for fast Fourier transform (FFT) processing and detection provided by mmWave software development kit (SDK)
  • AWR1642 EVM demonstrates the design
  • Radar front-end and detection configuration fully explained
Applications
  • Driver Vital Sign Monitoring
  • Front Sensor Fusion
  • Gesturing
  • Medium/Short Range Radar
  • Obstacle Detection Sensor
  • Ultra Short Range Radar
  • Vehicle Occupant Detection Sensor
