Firstly i am just about to start in the world of Arduino so excuse if what i am asking is already available.
I would like to build up one of the RADAR projects i see dotted around the web but would appreciate some advice.
For this type of project what drives the computer screen output ? i.e. the nice sweeping display, is there a computer programme required in addition to the Arduino sketch or does the arduio also drive the compuer screen output (not just the data but also the presentation display)
Will any transducer do for the available sketches ? or are the sketches specific to certain frequency transducers ( i can get a 40khz transducer from Maplins )
Once working is it possible to programme in say a 30 sec initial period after which any detected objects are considered background i.e. of no interest then only new objects are represented on the screen.
Thanks in advance for any input
