Radar : A sensory mode on the horizon | Make


curated by | July 4, 2014

“The radar creates a doppler map, and recognizes not only the vehicle, but how far away it is and how quicky it’s approaching. It communicates this to the cyclist by a system of LEDs, and to the car by increasing the rate at which the tail light blinks as the car gets closer.”

While the application described here is for use on a bicycle, it shows that radar technology has become compact enough, serving information in a sufficiently distilled form, to be useful in robotics.
