Physical Setup

This procedure can be done by following the online tutorial.

Flash the board with the corresponding binary file (.bin) for the specific function.


  • Different binary file provides different functions. Sometimes they are not compatible with each other.
  • Gesture with Machine Learning Demo requires gesture_ML_6443_AOP.bin file in the address: MMWAVE_TOOLBOX_INSTALL_DIR>\labs\gesture_recognition\Gesture_with_Machine_Learning\prebuilt_binaries\

pymmWave Library

pymmWave is an asynchronous TI mmWave library to expedite the development mmWave sensor.

Please flash the sensor with the binary file out_of_box_6843_aop.bin with the address: <INDUSTRIAL_TOOLBOX_INSTALL_DIR>\mmwave_industrial_toolbox_<VER>\ labs\Out_Of_Box_Demo\prebuilt_binaries\

Note: The address above is wrong in the user guide in MMWAVE SDK Demo - Lab User’s Guide. Please follow the address here.
