Millimeter-Wave Sensors Enhance Factory Safety (.PDF Download)

When you think of a sensor, you probably don’t think of millimeter-wave (mmWave) radar. Now, though, you can add mmWave radar chips to your mental archive along with the other more traditional sensors. If you’re designing new systems requiring proximity detection and the presence and movement of people, these radar ICs just may be a solution to consider.

Radar on a Chip: More Uses Than You Think

Actually, radar chips have been available for years. Their primary application has been in automotive advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) to detect nearby vehicles and persons, automate adaptive cruise controls, and implement automatic braking for collision avoidance. Traffic monitoring at intersections and other locations is a growing transportation application.
