Low Cost K-Band Doppler Radar Sensor For Traffic Control Applications

Simple mm-wave CW Doppler technology is used in various applications including automotive speed measurement, liquid flow control, hospital patient surveillance, and intruder detection in security systems. mm-wave technology has progressed quickly, but cost reduction for high-performance sensors using radar technology remains a serious challenge. However, in short-range traffic control applications, cost reduction is possible with a low-cost short-range K-band Doppler radar sensor. Download the application note to find out more about the K-band sensor's concept and design, and how it makes a good fit for high-volume, low-cost production.
