detecting distance to vehicle


Thread Starter

A & B Stalp

I am searching for a manufacturer of a transmitter, receiver, and antenna system, for a low power radar. I need to measure the distance
to the vehicle driving in front of the subject vehicle. It is not an accident avoidance system, but will be used for another project. I either need to be able to control the rf on/off gating, or have that signal available. Also I need to be able to get the returned demodulated signal. I need the time of flight, or echo time. If this
time is not available, I have computing power available in my processor. I am looking at distances of ten to one hundred fifty feet.

Any help, suggestions, or other contacts will surely be appreciated.

Thank You,

BANNER has a range of ultasonic sensors with analog output

Idec has a range of laser sensors with analog output

Outputs either 4-20mA or 0-10V DC.

Do not use Ultrasonic becasue its signal is affected by sound, condensation, temperature etc..

Use microwave radar(E+H) or laser sighting
