Q&A

Where do I go to get the installation?

What is Walabot?

A programmable sensor that will turn your PC 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.

Is Walabot safe to use?

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.

How can I get a Walabot development kit?

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.

I want to design my own board, what should I do?

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 – [email protected]

Can I build a commercial product based on Walabot?

Makers have used Walabot to create commercial products. Please reach out to us at [email protected] to find out more details.

Which applications can be developed with Walabot?

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.

Do I need to have a previous knowledge in RF/Sensor systems in order to use Walabot?

No, the Walabot DEVELOPER 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.

I have an amazing idea for Walabot. How can I make it happen?

Walabot is growing a community of builders who want to collaborate on projects together. Reach out to us at [email protected], we can help connect you.

What is the power consumption of Walabot?

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.

What physical interface can I use to connect to the board?

Currently USB 2.0/3.0 is supported. In the future we may add WiFi/BT.

When will Walabot be released?

Walabot is available now in the US and EU. We will shortly be receiving regulatory approval for other geographies.

Which OS and programming language can I develop using Walabot?

Currently Windows and Linux are supported with new development platforms planned for the near future. Programming languages: Python, C/C++, C#. (Java – future release).

I’m using a different programming language – will I be able to use Walabot?

Walabot SDK provides shared libraries with defined API which can be used. In addition, binding code is provided C# (pInvoke).

What is the maximum range that Walabot can sense targets?

Up to 5 meters in open space.

What is the smallest target size that Walabot can see?

Walabot can detect changes in resolution of sub-mm. Separation between targets or between target and clutter is determined by the RF band used.

How many antennas elements can I use?

Walabot Is built with up to 18 internal antennas.

What is the frame rate of radar images?

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.

What is the frequency range used by the radar system?

From 3Ghz to 10Ghz depending on country regulations.

I want to develop a new application. Where should I start?

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.

I need guidance in operating the dev kit. Where I get it?

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.
