4.4 Intelligent fall detection using TI mmWave radar sensors
Actively sense when a fall has occurred and take action such as sending out an alert in response. Our 60GHz antenna-on-package radar sensor (IWR6843AOP) is ideal for fall detection applications since it’s able to:
- Detect falls in large, indoor environments
- Can distinguish between a person sitting and falling
- Utilizes a point cloud vs a person’s identifiable features which allows the sensor to be used in areas where privacy is vital such as bathrooms and bedrooms
The IWR6843AOP sensor’s smaller size allows a wide range of options for sensor placement and eliminates the need for RF-design expertise.
