4.2 Gesture detection for automotive in-cabin applications


2021年 6月 1日

The new 60GHz antenna-on-package radar sensor, AWR6843AOP, is ideal for in-cabin gesture detection due to the privacy it offers (sensor utilizes point cloud data instead of facial information that camera-based solutions currently use) and provides the following benefits:

  • Flexible in-cabin placement due to radar’s ability to sense through various materials and its small form factor
  • Multi-modal (ex. can perform child presence detection while car is off and gesture control while car is running)
  • Robust sensing unaffected by lighting or temperature conditions 

Applications using this type of gesture control include changing radio stations, answering phone calls, opening windows, and more.
