I made a Python version of the library for communicating with grove’s Doppler radar: GitHub - tooploox/grove-doppler-radar: Python library for communication with grove doppler radar based on the BGT24LTR11 and wanted to try it on my car-like robot.
I decided to implement a simple driver assistance system that would stop a car (or in reality, just warn a driver) if it senses a fast-approaching object on a collision path, even if the object is fully occluded by a wall or other obstacle.
My radar’s signal can’t pass through concrete walls but a wooden desk or cardboard doesn’t seem to be a problem. And, the technology for sensing objects through walls does exist, it would be convenient to have it in a car! The ability to measure the speed of other cars would be a bonus.
