Radar Sensor Extends Range


OmniPreSense’s OPS242 short-range radar sensor performs traffic monitoring with detection distances up to 100m (328 feet). The sensor provides four times the detection range of its predecessor, the OPS242, and includes a unique object counting algorithm. This makes the OPS243 viable for vehicle and people traffic monitoring in Smart City applications. In addition, the OPS243 will carry full FCC/IC modular certification, lowering system costs and time to market. 

The OPS243 can see cars and trucks up to 100m away and has a tight 20° beam width, allowing it to look farther down two-lane roads, and providing more data points for analysis. Users can implement a traffic monitoring solution to better understand traffic flows in front of the sensor. 

Future versions of the OPS243 will provide wireless communication options for passing data to the cloud. Power consumption is reduced to as low as 0.1W, enabling battery operation in remote locations. The OPS243 is priced at $209 in single unit quantities and will ship in June. For more details, peruse the OPS243 datasheet.
