I have just been out for a quick test on my bike. "luckily" I got reasonably close passed within the first 100 yards (at least you can rely on cars for something
The attached graph shows the captured distance data from this event. I am pretty impressed with this result, it shows that the cars distance was measured around 14 times as it passed and each reading agrees with the distance (around 1.2 meters).
btw - I have limited its range to around 2.5 meters so basically anything over 2.5m (or if no echo is received) it will just show as 5m, so you can see that one of the attempted readings as the car passed did not work (maybe reflected from a wing mirror??)
In this case it was taking a distance reading around every 33 milliseconds. So it took a total of 460ms or nearly half a second for the car to pass.
Interesting thought that you could calculate the cars relative speed from this. I just had a quick try at a rough estimate and came up with 28mph.
Anyway, I think this works as a proof of concept, is this of interest/use to anyone? If so I will carry on developing it a bit more otherwise I think I have done all I wanted to (I was just interested to see if it would work).
