OmniPreSense Corporation, a supplier of Short-Range Radar (SRR) sensors, has announced its newest radar sensor with a smaller form factor and FCC modular approval. The OPS242 is 30% smaller than the previous OPS241 radar sensor, supporting space constrained applications.
The OPS242 also provides FCC modular approval to simplify customer development and speed release to production. With a detection range of 10m for people and up to 25m for cars, the OPS242 is an ideal solution for traffic monitoring systems.
The OPS242 short-range radar detects motion, reporting speed and direction of objects in its field of view. With a top detection speed greater than 140mph, the OPS242 can handle the fastest of car traffic. A simple application programming interface (API) provides direct control of the OPS242, allowing changes to reported units (m/s, mph, etc.), transmitted power, and other useful settings.
New for the API is the reporting of multiple objects in the sensors field of view. As many as 9 different reports for speed and magnitude are available. Magnitude information consists of size, reflectivity, and distance information for the objects detected. This is most beneficial for traffic monitoring solutions. Multi-object detect is yet another feature that competitive solutions such a passive infrared (PIR) or ultrasonic sensors cannot provide.
Potential traffic monitoring applications for the sensor include radar speed signs, road traffic monitoring, sidewalk foot traffic counting, and in-room presence detection. “There’s an increasing trend to build Smart Cities and Smart Homes which the OPS242 supports,” stated Rob Frizzell, CEO and co-founder of OmniPreSense. “We’re pleased to provide such a simple, small form factor, and low-cost solution to making our cities smarter and safer.”
