Vayyar, Walabot's parent company brought sensors to CES. It showcased live demos of looking through walls to see leaks, tracking people, fall detection and breathing analysis.
New cell phone jacket revealed, making Walabot ultra-portable and able to turn smartphones into advanced 3D imaging system. Demo applications are shown running on Android.
Walabot is alive! Discovered it had unforeseen abilities including sensing and motion detection of both objects and people. Continue to uncover new uses for the sensor from breathing monitoring, liquid analysis to multi-person tracking.
Walabot initial concept - build a platform that makes powerful & expensive technology, cheap and accessible. Focused on advanced imaging capabilities, that lets users see through solid objects, like walls and create 3D images.
Please go to www.walabot.com/gettingstarted and choose an installer based on the OS you're using.
Other OS’s are on our road-map, but if you have questions about a specific OS, please contact us email@example.com.
•For Windows, we provide SDK, vs2015 projects with sample codes for C++ & C# and an API tutorial application.
•For Linux we provide SDK and sample codes.
•For Android we provide an In-Wall Imaging sample application.
For windows, download the execution file and run it.
It will install the API tutorial demo app and the SDK.
To run the application, click on the shortcut on your desktop.
To run the sample code, extract one of the projects under 'C:\ProgramFiles\Walabot\WalabotSDK\example\c++'
(or the equivalent C# example) to your folder and open the project in visual studio.
Compile and run it.
Check the status of the device – if the status shows ‘device disconnected’
Check your cable is fully connected to the USB2 port in your computer
If this doesn’t work go to this link to troubleshoot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8F2SYGpuPuY&feature=youtu.be
Connect the device before opening the application.
If device was connected whilst the application was open, press on 'ApplyAndCalibrate' to reconnect.
Please take a look at our tutorial video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRXt1VJkhQU
Please repeat the calibration using the apply & calibrate button in the GUI. Please make sure there aren’t any moving parts in front of the Walabot when the calibration is in process.
We currently provide SDK DLL for C++, and .NET DLL for C# with sample codes.
You can build your own wrapper for other languages above our SDK as well (e.g. python/java). An additional wrapper for other programming languages will be provided by us in the next releases.
Connect the cables to your phone and the Walabot. Please make sure you are connecting the right end of the cable to the right port as instructed in the short animation explanation in the application
Select the correct wall (drywall/concrete) and the operation mode – either: pipe detection or raw data.
Attach the device to the wall
CALIBRATE. Calibration must be done every time you scan a new wall
Make sure the device touches the wall as it moves along the wall
You can scan the wall in any direction and check what you see
Most likely because you haven’t yet calibrated the system. The sensor needs to adjust, and calibration is performed to remove background noise. Another reason that can cause that is insufficient battery power in your cellphone.
In pipe mode, the device receives all target signals placed in-front of the sensor and converts the raw data into pipe shapes. Consequently, if you place something in front of the sensor in pipe mode, you will get an image which appears to be a pipe. To make sure you are tracking a pipe, follow the pipe image and continue along the wall and this will enable you to detect the position of pipes and wires hidden behind it.
This level sets the sensitivity of the sensor: higher sensitivity amplifies reflections coming from smaller objects, lower sensitivity eliminates reflections from smaller objects. When looking to detect wiring or piping behind a wall, you may want to play with the sensitivity levels to suit the type of wall and eliminate smaller objects.
A programmable sensor that will turn your PC and select smartphones into a 3D imaging system. It has a highly flexible sensor system with between 3 and 18 antennas, wideband frequency operation and on board preprocessing with USB 3.0/2.0 data interface.
Absolutely. The energy level transmitted from the array is much less than any cellular phone while it is transmitting. It is FCC and CE approved.
We will be giving out free development kits to community members. Sign up for our mailing list and provide feedback in Walabot Labs and you will be entered to win.
Walabot does not currently allow you to design your own board. Send us an e-mail if you have a unique idea that you want to discuss – firstname.lastname@example.org
Makers have used Walabot to create commercial products. Please reach out to us at email@example.com to find out more details.
Walabot has a broad range of capabilities, so you can develop an array of applications including target tracking, 3D imaging through solid objects, breath detection, doppler measurements for speed, and more.
No, the Walabot PRO comes with a pre-made application to see into your walls, that anyone can use. It was created to be simple for developers to build.
Walabot is growing a community of builders who want to collaborate on projects together. Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, we can help connect you.
That depends on the usage profile. Using it's battery, in the most consuming application, the device operates for up to two hours without charging.
Currently USB 2.0/3.0 is supported. In the future we may add WiFi/BT.
Walabot is available now in the US and EU. We will shortly be receiving regulatory approval for other geographies.
Currently Windows and Linux are supported with new development platforms planned for the near future. Our Walabot PRO in-wall imaging application runs on Android 5.0 and above with OTG (see whitelist of approved phones). Programming languages: C/C++, C#. (Java – future release).
Walabot SDK provides shared libraries with defined API which can be used. In addition, binding code is provided C# (pInvoke).
Up to 5 meters in open space.
Walabot can detect changes in resolution of sub-mm. Separation between targets or between target and clutter is determined by the RF band used.
Walabot Is built with up to 18 internal antennas.
That depends on the frequency band and the number of antenna pairs in a 3D image and it's resolution. Typical image is ~5 frames/sec for complete 3D image for entire system (array+processing in Samsung Note-5 phone). Simple sensor acquisition can be much faster.
From 3Ghz to 10Ghz depending on country regulations.
First please read the demos applications usage guide, and play with them. Then developing a new application using the sample code and the API documentation.
Our website will shortly contain a full suite of development tools and resources along with a step by step guides for beginners and additional information for power users. We will host development tutorials sessions for additional coaching.
Example apps you can develop:
