Vehicle occupant detection reference design

This reference design demonstrates the use of the AWR1642, single-chip mmWave sensor with integrated DSP, as a Vehicle Occupant Detection Sensor enabling the detection of life forms in a vehicle. This design provides a reference processing chain which runs on the C674x DSP, enabling the generation of a heat map to detect life forms in a Field of View (FOV) of ±60 degrees.
