Walabot is a pocket-sized device that provides cutting-edge technology for Radio Frequency (RF) tridimensional (3D) sensing and image processing, enabling sophisticated applications such as:
Several sample applications are provided, and Walabot's flexible API enables you to create your own applications to access Walabot as a peripheral. With Walabot connected via USB and the Walabot SDK (for Windows, Linux and Raspberry Pi) installed, your custom application can use Walabot's API to receive various types of processed and unprocessed images. The application can then use image data as needed, including performing additional processing such as tracking changes between images to identify movement.
Walabot senses the environment by transmitting, receiving and recording signals from multiple antennas. The broadband recordings from multiple transmit-receive antenna pairs are analyzed to reconstruct a three-dimensional image of the environment. Analysis of sequences of images allows detecting changes in the environment.
Y coordinate: For Walabot the distance is approximately 7 m from the device. While working with the raw signals, you can actually pick up data much further out.
X coordinates: 7 m is the standard with an angle of 120 degrees, but if you are trying to detect strong static reflectors within a narrowed angle, you can do so from up to 15-20 m. This is very much application specific.
