What is bistatic sensor?
In bistatic technology the transmitter and receiver are installed at a known distance a part from each other. The transmitter transmits the signal. The signal is reflected from the unknown object. This reflected signal is received by the receiver. The receiver than calculates the location and speed of the unknown moving object.
The figures below shows whats the difference between radar mono-static and bi-static technology.
Potential bistatic radar technology utilization
Arduino and arduino ultrasound sensors will be used in the project to construct a bistatic field. For more about the project hardware and software watch the project video.
According to author:
This project will take ultrasound sensors and integrate them into a bistatic sensor, similar to a bistatic radar, where the sensors are physically separated. The project develops hardware and software to measure and then process the ultrasound signals.
