Radio waves are used by RADAR, an object-detection system, to calculate an object's range, altitude, direction, and speed. There are many various sizes and performance requirements for radar systems. Airports utilize a variety of radar systems for air traffic management, long-range monitoring, and early warning systems. The brains of a missile guidance system are radar systems. There are small portable radar systems that a single person can maintain and run as well as systems that take up many sizable rooms.Several governments developed radar in secret both before and during World War II. The United States Navy came up with the name RADAR, not the actual technology, in 1940 to stand for Radio Detection and Ranging. Since becoming a common noun in English and other languages, radar has lost all capitalization.The modern uses of radar are highly diverse, including:•Air traffic control•Radar astronomy•Air-defense systemsDigital signal processing is used in high-tech radar systems, which can extract meaningful information from extremely loud noise.The Air Force, Navy, and Army all use this technology. Such technology is currently being used in Google's future Prius and Lexus autonomous cars as well as the self-parking car systems introduced by Audi, Ford, and others. The project we created can be used by the customer in whatever systems they choose, such those in a car, a bicycle, or anything else. The project's use of Arduino gives the module's usage even more freedom to be used as needed.
