Introduction to mmWave radar sensing: FMCW radars

This series of videos provides a concise yet in-depth introduction to sensing using FMCW radars.

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
  • The ability to penetrate materials such as plastic, drywall and clothing
  • Privacy-conscious sensors that do not sense any identifiable information
