OmniPreSense Introduces Wi-Fi Enabled Radar Sensor with Cloud Connectivity

OmniPreSense Corporation, an innovative supplier of Short-Range Radar sensors, announced an extension of its OPS243 radar sensors with Wi-Fi data communication to the cloud. The new OPS243-C utilizes Wi-Fi to send data to the cloud and is viewable on an Android app. The Android app enables a simple means of connecting to a Wi-Fi network and configuring the sensor. Wi-Fi connectivity provides more flexible mounting of the OPS243 radar sensor for remote monitoring of vehicle and people traffic.

The radar sensor is a complete IoT system on a single board, detecting objects in its field of view and seamlessly passing the data to the cloud. Users utilize an Android app to connect the sensor to the desired Wi-Fi network, configure the sensor, and visualize the data.

The OPS243-C sensor can detect people up to 15 m away and vehicles up to 60 m away. It reports both the speed and range of objects detected in its 20 ° x 24 ° field of view. The same simple API found on other OmniPreSense radar sensors is utilized. A simple means of counting vehicles and people are integrated into the API.

Rob Frizzell, CEO, and Co-founder of OmniPreSense believes that with Wi-Fi support it has become easier to mount remote radar sensors and access the data anywhere. This will make cities smarter, more efficient, greener, and safer.

The OPS243-C Wi-Fi radar sensor is priced at $249 in single-unit quantities. It can be ordered from the company website or from its worldwide distribution partner Mouser.
