mmWave IWR - robotics
Smarter robotics through mmWave radar sensing
TI’s mmWave sensor enables intelligent sensing at the edge by integrating accurate sensing with real-time decision making and processing on a single chip helping further accelerate the adoption of robotic systems. These sensors can be used for high accuracy occupancy detection and collision avoidance, where the position and velocity of people can be used to trigger systems when a person or an object is in proximity of a machine.
