IWR1642BOOST: Is there a way to increase the range of ti's ppl counter application?

Part Number: IWR1642BOOST

Hi all,

I am currently running the pplcount application that comes with ti's mmwave industrial toolbox. I would like to know if anyone knows how to increase the range of the application. Currently it will only track up to 6m but the room I am trying to use it in is around 15m.  I am pretty sure that I need to mess with the configuration file but do not want to mess up the lab by changing the file without knowing what the numbers mean in the .cfg file. The file looks like this currently:

dfeDataOutputMode 1
channelCfg 15 3 0
adcCfg 2 1
adcbufCfg 0 1 1 1
profileCfg 0 77 30 7 62 0 0 60 1 128 2500 0 0 30
chirpCfg 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1
chirpCfg 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 2
frameCfg 0 1 128 0 50 1 0
lowPower 0 0
guiMonitor 1 1 0 0
cfarCfg 6 4 4 4 4 16 16 4 4 50 62 0
doaCfg 600 1875 30 1
trackingCfg 1 2 250 20 200 50 90
sensorStart

Is there any documentation on this file for the IWR1642BOOST?

Any help on this is issue much appreciated!

Thank you so much!

    In addition, is there any documentation on what each number means in the cfg file? I would like to be able to fine tune it myself, but don't know how to increase / decrease specific settings. For some reason the people counting customization guide link is not working for me.

    Thanks again,

    Matt
