Device Compatibility

⚠️ This lab is currently only compatible with the AWRL1432.


This lab demonstrates the use of TI AWRL1432 mmWave sensors for a kick-to-open system to allow for hands-free access to the trunk of a vehicle. As low power consumption is a key pain point for this use case, this lab implements two modes: “Low Power Mode” and “Gesture Mode.” While in “Low Power Mode,” the sensor consumes minimal power while searching for a presence to trigger a switch to “Gesture Mode.” In “Gesture Mode” the device uses range, velocity, and angle data to enable detection and classification of a kick gesture. This lab outputs what mode the sensor is in, the device’s power consumption, and whether or not a kick has been detected.
