Entry-level blind spot detection reference design using mmWave radar


Design files


This reference design provides a foundation for corner radar applications to meet entry-level blind spot detection (BSD) requirements using the AWRL1432BOOST-BSD evaluation module. The design allows users to estimate and track the position (in the azimuthal plane) and velocity of objects up to 120m.

  • Enables car manufacturers to meet entry-level blind spot detection (BSD) requirements using a single chip
  • Detect and track objects (such as cars and trucks) up to 120 meters away with velocities of ±144 kmph
  • Antenna azimuth field of view ±60° with azimuth angular resolution of approximately 20°
  • Demonstrates AWRL1432 processing capabilities, including data compression, max velocity extension, and 2D tracking
  • Improves the customer development cycle (for example, hardware redesign and software effort)
