Introducing the new SparkFun Qwiic Pulsed Coherent Radar Sensor

A new powerful sensor from SparkFun that uses 60 GHz radar technology from Acconeer.

This sensor goes beyond surface detection; it can see and detect objects through walls, cabinets, and even pockets (depending on the material), making it perfect for a wide variety of applications and unique innovations. Use it to measure distances with millimeter precision, detect motion, the speed of an object, or even gestures!

The sensor has a long range of up to 20 meters and despite its capabilities, the sensor has remarkably low power consumption, which is ideal for battery-powered applications. It connects easily to your computer or other devices and has software to help you visualize and understand the data it collects. This opens doors to endless project possibilities in areas such as smart homes, security, robotics, and more.

The true innovation shines in the sensor’s ability to do more than measure distance; the XM125 from Acconeer can differentiate between stationary objects and moving targets using pulsed coherent radar. This means you can sense an object’s presence and how fast it is moving!
