Vehicle occupant detection reference design

Vehicle occupant detection reference design
This reference design demonstrates the use of the AWR1642, single-chip mmWave sensor with integrated DSP, as a Vehicle Occupant Detection Sensor enabling the detection of life forms in a vehicle. This design provides a reference processing chain which runs on the C674x DSP, enabling the generation of a heat map to detect life forms in a Field of View (FOV) of ±60°.

Charging docking stations expanded across Europe and US

Charging docking stations expanded across Europe and US
  With some cities housing over 50,000 shared electric scooters from operators such as Bird, Lime, Spin and Voi, and more and more landing every week, something has to give. Cities are unable to cope with the extreme clutter caused by these vehicles and the race to build infrastructure for micro-mobility has begun.

Adding CAN nodes in Bluetooth Low Energy PEPS systems

Adding CAN nodes in Bluetooth Low Energy PEPS systems
In a passive-entry-passive-start (PEPS) automotive system using Bluetooth Low Energy technology, drivers enter their car and start the electric motor (or engine, in the case of an internal combustion engine) using a key fob that communicates with the car’s access systems, instead of a key.
