Hardware Pioneers has teamed up with Texas Instruments once again, this time to help our technical community to get familiar with Industrial mmWave sensors used to develop solutions for traffic monitoring, building automation, robotics, industrial transport and more. During this exceptional workshop you will learn how to detect high accuracy range, velocity, and angle information using TI’s mmWave sensors and run demos about gesture recognition, vital signs monitoring and people counting.

TI’s mmWave sensors enable a smarter world through intelligent sensing at the edge. By integrating high accuracy sensing with intelligent processing in a single chip, mmWave sensors solve problems in a wide range of industrial applications.
What is mmWave
mmWave is an extremely valuable sensing technology for detection of objects and providing the range, velocity and angle of these objects. It is a contactless-technology which operates in the spectrum between 30GHz and 300GHz.
Due to the technology’s use of small wavelengths it can provide sub-mm range accuracy and is able to penetrate certain materials such as plastic, drywall, clothing, and is impervious to environmental conditions such as rain, fog, dust and snow.
