Automated doors reference design using TI mmWave sensors


This reference design demonstrates the use of the TI IWR6843ISK: a single-chip mmWave radar sensor with integrated DSP for an automated smart-door application. This reference design uses the IWR6843ISK plus industrial carrier board (ICB) and integrates a complete radar-processing chain onto the IWR6843 device. This solution is designed to track a person's position and velocity in order to simulate the opening of a door when they are approaching.
