Arduino Gets Its First Radar Shield Board

OmniPreSense Corporation announces the first radar sensor shield board that plugs directly into Arduino boards. An upgrade to the OPS241 radar sensor allows a direct Arduino connection, bringing new capabilities to the DIY solution. The OPS241 plus an Arduino can enable unique electronic systems for motion detection, reporting speed, or direction of objects in the field of view.


The OPS241 and OPS242 are complete single-board radar sensors capable of detecting objects up to 25m away. They have a beam width of approximately 78° wide which can be reduced to 26° with one of the electromagnetic lens enclosures OmniPreSense provides.
