What is mmWave radar technology?

Millimeter-wave (mmWave) radar is a contactless sensing technology for detecting objects and providing the range, velocity and angle of those objects.

Capabilities of mmWave radar technology include:

  • Operation in challenging environmental conditions such as darkness, extreme bright light, dust, rain, snow and extreme temperatures.
  • Sub-millimeter range accuracy.
  • The ability to penetrate materials such as plastic, drywall and clothing.
  • Privacy-conscious sensors that do not sense any identifiable information.
