AWR6843ISK: Issue in connecting AWR6843 ISK sensor to a raspberry pi

Part Number: AWR6843ISK
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: UNIFLASH

Dear team,

I am trying to connect my AWR6843ISK to a Raspberry PI 3 B+.

Please note, I have already flashed the out-of-box demo in my sensor. I am able to collect data with mmWave Demo Visualizer (SDK 3.4.0) with Windows 10  as well as Ubuntu 20.04 OS. I just had to install the following drivers from this link. However, when I am trying the same with mmWave Demo Visualizer (SDK 3.4.0) in Raspberry Pi it asks for the installation of TiCloudAgent Extension (which I was able to complete), and then it asks for the installation of  TiCloudAgent Application. After downloading when I am trying to execute the .run file it says -bash: ./ cannot execute binary file: Exec format error

Please help.

  • Hello.

    Could you please explain why you need TI Cloud Agent?  I would just recommend that you use uniflash to flash the device and then connect to the visualizer.  In addition, here is another e2e that discusses a similar issue to yours.

    Also, we are letting everyone know that e2e will be down starting September 28th.

    Hope this helps,


  • I have already flashed the out-of-box demo. It is running properly in my Ubuntu and Windows system.

    All I need to do is to connect the sensor to my Raspberry Pi having mmWave demo visualizer software. But the issue is that mmWave Demo Visualizer requires Ti Cloud Agent installed. So when I am trying to install it throws the error. 

    The other discussion directs to directly read the serial data using python scripts. In that case, I need to write the entire post-processing python script on how to receive the serial data, and how to find the TLVs. And how to interpret different TLV types (range-doppler, point clouds, etc,), which was already implemented in mmWave demo visualizer software.

    So can you forward me some open source implementations of the demo visualizer using python script?

  • Hello.

    In the e2e that I sent, there is a link to a webpage listing the dependencies for TI Cloud Agent as well as instructions on how to install them.  I have included that link here.  Since the Raspberry Pi OS is based in Linux, there are certain libraries/dependencies that are required as well to install the application.  Please check you meet these requirements.  They are under the header of Linux Library Dependencies.  In addition, please check if you have CCS downloaded on the device; if you have CCS desktop on your Raspberry Pi you should not have to download the agent application, as stated in this e2e.

    Hope this helps,
