Theory Basically a Doppler radar is a type of radar which measures speed of objects in front of it. The transmitted signal is mixed with the received frequency in a frequency mixer. If an object moves in front of the radar, the received […]

I got pretty excited about it and immediately thought that I wanted to build a better one from scratch. The design presented in this post is just the preliminary design, a lot of things might change as I go along. Theory I won’t go to too much detail […]
