  • Below is Batman BM101 mmWave EVM Kit with Raspberry Pi 3 / 4 set up notes:

    1. Please refer to the attached BM101 Batman EVM Kit file for background info.

    2. Please follow our manual instruction to set up the mmWave + Hat-Board and with the corresponding Jumper Setting for Raspberry Pi configuration. Please refer to the attached Manual/Quick Guide and see under Jumper Setting -> Mode 2 Raspberry Pi .

    3. Install full Raspbian OS onto the Raspberry Pi 3 / 4’s SD Card. Do not skip any installation item.

    4. Once the mmWave Module is connected to the HAT-Board, and the HAT-Board is connected to the Raspberry Pi 3 / 4 computer running Raspbian, then Configure Serial Port under Raspberry Pi – Interface Configuration; to enable Serial Port and Serial Console.




    5.Follow the BM101 EVM Kit’s Manual/Quick Guide (see STEP #2 above, or visit https://github.com/bigheadG/mmWave), to download corresponding application’s Python SDK/ Python Script (such as VSD, PMB, HAM, SRR, PC3D) to Raspberry Pi; and follow the Python Script instruction (including Install Library such as $sudo pip3 install mmWave, etc.) .
    Note: Raspberry Pi 3 may not run PC3D with heavy graphics calculations, please use Raspberry Pi 4 instead.

    6.And you may use Geany to run Python Script; and make sure to Compile with python3 and Execute with python3 in Set Build Commands window.


    7.For some of the application Python SDK / Python Scripts, you may remark out or delete Python script file’s import matplotlib lines (since some applications are not using matplotlib, but you may keep them if you would use them on your own script code; and in this case, please make sure to pip3 install matplotlib accordingly).

    8.Also, make sure to pip3 install tkinter for the output text window display for application such as the VSD Python SDK.

    9.And finally run the Python script, and you should be able to get the Python script working.



  • How to choose mmWave EVM Kit

    Flavor selection

    (BM101-VSD)
    Vital Signs Detection

    • 30cm ~ 90cm (about 1~3 feet)
      Built-in with Vital Signs Detection (VSD) Firmware; for a contactless and wearableless 30cm ~ 90cm (about 1~3 feet) distance detection of Vital Signs (Heartbeat Rate & Respiration Rate) of a person, a pet, or an animal.

    (BM101-HAM)
    High Accuracy Measurement

    • 30cm ~ 3meters (about 1~10 feet)
      Built-in with High Accuracy Measurement (HAM) Firmware; for measuring object distance from the mmWave Sensor Module with the range of 30cm ~ 3meters (about 1~10 feet) with millimeter resolution.

    (BM101-PMB)
    People Movement Behavior

    • 4 x 4 meter or 16 meter square area (or about 172 square feet)
      Built-in with People Movement Behavior (PMB) Trigger Firmware; for detecting People movement in a 4 x 4 meter or 16 meter square area (or about 172 square feet), and with software that could set virtual geo-fence(s) to trigger alert or action when People are moving into the geo-fence(s).

    (BM101-SRR)
    Short Range Radar

    • For Human:1 meters ~ 20meters (about 3 ~ 66 feet)
      For Vechile:1 meters ~ 50meters (about 3 ~ 164 feet)
      and with viewing angle of 120 degrees
      Built-in with Short Range Radar Firmware; for detecting objects’ distance with the range of 1meters ~ 20meters (about 3 ~ 66 feet) and with viewing angle of 120 degrees, along with Doppler Data to distinguish for whether the objects are moving-towards or moving-away from the mmWave sensor.

    (BM201-LPD)
    Long-Range People Detection

    • For Human:1 meters ~ 50meters (about 3 ~ 164 feet)
      The Kit’s mmWave Module is built-in with Long-Range People Counting Firmware; for a contactless and wearableless real-time detection of people movement from 1 meter to 50 meter range for various applications that require people sensing or counting without privacy invasion.

    (BM301-FDS)
    Fall Detection Sensing

    • For Human: 3-dimensional movement from -3 meter ~ +3 meter on one direction, and -3 meter ~ + 3meter on the perpendicular/orthogonal direction, and +3 meter from ceiling to ground
      Built-in with Fall Detection Sensing Firmware; when positioned in the center of a room’s ceiling, the mmWave Module is capable of detecting People’s 3-dimensional movement from -3 meter ~ +3 meter on one direction, and -3 meter ~ + 3meter on the perpendicular/orthogonal direction, and +3 meter from ceiling to ground, all with the respect to the mmWave Sensor positioned in the center of the ceiling; and thus, the Sensor is capable to detect and track people movement along with standing, sitting, lying down positions.
