1. A computer-implemented method comprising:

  • providing, via a radar-emitting element of a device, a radar field;

    receiving, via a radar-receiving element of the device, one or more reflection signals that correspond to a target in the radar field;

    transforming the one or more reflection signals to provide radar data;

    extracting, from the radar data, a radar feature comprising an indication of a shape of the target;

    activating, based on the radar feature, a sensor of the device to provide supplemental sensor data;

    augmenting the radar feature with the supplemental sensor data to enhance the radar feature; and

    providing the enhanced radar feature to a sensor-based application effective to improve performance of the sensor-based application.
