Distance meter

Postby 7tigers » February 6th, 2014, 5:49 pm

I've been looking at making a HUD display system (for a car/truck) for a University project to help with getting information about one's vehicle and proximity to close objects.

The electronic/logic core is flexible. Right now, the state of the project is looking to source sensors to use for parallel parking aids. Measured distance desired up to 10 feet.

They cannot be ultrasonic due to the noise of the outside world...

Must be weatherproof also.

Any thoughts?

I think a lot of these systems user microwaves:

...looks like some use dual cameras too. I like the dual cameras as that lends its self to image processing and other interesting possibilities.
