Innovation Lab

Get inspiration from tech projects by Acconeer engineers, use the assets to evaluate a use case and explore the endless possibilities of Acconeer’s radar technology. And why not try out your own idea?

The projects you find on this page are experimental and intended to inspire and provide basic assets and guidance for anyone who wants to explore these radar-based use cases. In general, they are not continuously updated or supported with official software. For implementations using A111-based modules or EVK, the use case will most likely work just as well or even better using the new A121 radar sensor. Don’t forget to also have a look at our more thoroughly tested and supported Reference Applications!


Tell us about your radar-based project! We’d love to hear from you, get in touch on (We take care to handle your information according to applicable laws and regulations. Learn more in our Privacy Policy).
