Traditional sensing technologies have been used to tackle the challenging problems of people counting, motion detection, industrial area scanning, and robotics to detect objects and avoid collisions.

As more industrial applications move toward autonomous functioning, sensing becomes more important to generate and process a variety of data so that systems can become autonomous and make real-time decisions. With Texas Instruments’ highly integrated millimeter-wave (mmWave) radar sensors, a larger amount of processing can occur within the sensor, thus enabling intelligence at the edge.

TI mmWave sensors perform in a variety of environmental and lighting conditions for indoor and outdoor applications. These extremely rugged sensors can be mounted directly behind enclosure plastics without external lenses, apertures or sensor surfaces, which makes this technology capable of accurate sensing in many building and factory applications. TI’s 60-GHz frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) mmWave technology allows open-band mmWave sensing for most industrial applications worldwide. To make industrial sensing even more streamlined, small size antenna-on-package sensors enable designs in form factors that were never possible before.
