A mmWave radar data processing library

Project description

PreSense mmWave Package

Version Documentation

This is PreSense team's implementation of TI mmwave radar DSP stack and some demos. We are grateful for TI, TI's e2e forum and other people's help to make this happen. Please star us if you like this repository and please consider citing this repo if you used it in your research.

The toolbox is modularized into separate steps

  1. Reading raw ADC data.
  2. Preprocessing data in DSP stack.
  3. Utilizing preprocessed data for tracking, clustering and machine learning.
  4. Different demo implementations from TI and our own explorations.

Current Roadmap for this package

  • Code refactoring for better API support.
  • More tutorials to help people get started on FMCW radar.
  • More AoA methods support.
  • More noise removal algorithms.

Future Plan

  1. Hardware Abstraction Layer, e.g. hardware-agnostic data reading or processing.
  2. ML on radar (classification, detection, tracking, etc).


Pip installation

Coming soon

Debug Mode

git clone
cd openradar
pip install -r requirements.txt
python develop


pip uninstall mmwave

Example Import and Usage

import mmwave as mm
from mmwave.dataloader import DCA1000

dca = DCA1000()
adc_data =
radar_cube = mm.dsp.range_processing(adc_data)
