Can you capture the data from a radar gun? Answered
Hi, here's my project, I want to create a device that could capture data from a radar gun and be translated into say microsoft excel. Then I could find average speeds, time of day when people speed the most, things like that. I've have some programming knowledge, a little circuitry know-how and i'm wondering if there were any guides out there that could help? I've been looking around but no luck.
I was looking to buy a cheap toy radar gun and capture the data, perhaps using an arduino and then translate the data in excel.
if all else fails, I may look into using an arduino with 2 IR outputs. set them a known distance away and measure the time it took to trip the second one after the first one.. thus giving the velocity.
If theres any help on this project that would be great. I'm so interested in these kinds of projects I want try to fiddle with my own.
