Part Number: AWR1642BOOST-ODS


I am working on the implementation of ROS point cloud visualizer with AWR1642BOOST-ODS mmWave Radar.

As ROS does not directly support to AWR1642BOOST-ODS, I am trying to customize code for ROS point cloud visualizer with AWR1642BOOST-ODS using the following link.


But I am not getting exactly how can I change header format in ROS package ti_mmwave_rospkg according to data format supported by AWR1642BOOST-ODS.

I am following below link to learn about data/header format of AWR1642BOOST-ODS


How do I need to customize my code which supported by AWR1642BOOST-ODS?

Thanks & Regards,


  • Hi,

    Unfortunately our team does not have experience with ROS interface since none of our demos support ROS.

    I will let the forum community provide support for this request

    thank you

    Hi Cesar,

    I successfully implemented ROS point cloud visualizer demo using the following ti_mmWave_rospkg package.


    Using this library I implemented ROS point cloud visualizer on AWR1642BOOST-ODS radar.

    Thank you for your support.

    Thanks & Regards,

    This is good news!

    Would it be possible to share your changes so the rest of the mmwave forum community can benefit from it?

    thank you

    Hii Cesar,

    Here is how it works for me,

    1)Cloned ti_mmwave_rospkg (https://github.com/ibcn-cloudlet/ti_mmwave_rospkg.git ) into catkin_ws/src folder.

    2)Installed mmWave SDK version in windows and flashed xwr16xx_mmwave_demo.bin file on AWR1642BOOST-ODS device using uniflash.

    3)Saved configuration of chirp using https://dev.ti.com/gallery/view/mmwavebeta/mmWave_Demo_Visualizer_Record/ver/2.0.0/ mmWaveDemoVisualizer. 

    4)Replaced the config i.e.cfg file under the folder catkin_ws/src/ti_mmwave_rospkg/cfg with 1642es2_long_range.cfg

    5)Then, just launch 1642es2_long_range.launch file using roslaunch ti_mmwave_rospkg 1642es2_long_range.launch.

    6)It works for AWR1642BOOST-ODS devices too.

    Thanks & Regards,
