hmm... Unfortunately, I can't give a exact module recommendation for your project, but maybe the following is helpful to find a solution:
One basic rule is that...
Have you considered the NFC Type-V tags/readers? They can go up to 1-2 meters, but with slower data rate (26kbps typically). If the reduced data data is not an issue, this can be a solution....
The modules I have played with have been doppler radar sensors so can only detect the speed of the object and not the distance. Most have a range of about 30m and I did see some at 100m, but nothing approaching...
Hello from France, Could be a question for Bill Marshall...
Sorry not used to this forum how it works!
I am involved in a project developing a communication network between Harvesters machines...
Thanks Peter! One of my goals is to try and make contact with the ISS. I have an app on my phone showing when it's over my house, but so far I haven't been home when it's over.
The standard solution to acquiring improved cellular signal strength is to have an antenna placed.
GNU radio is popular for teaching DSP & exploring new radio architectures. For receiver applications, the low cost dongle is a popular hardware choice, but this SDRplay workflow gives reliable, clean, radio signal reception from 1kHz to 2GHz
How will data affect how we travel in the future?
Antennas are a fundamental component of any wireless RF solution and this article helps to understand how to read the test patterns and what they mean.
Versatile single chip device integrates a microcontroller plus peripherals with support for basic and enhanced Bluetooth data rates, ultra-low power BLE, Bluetooth Mesh and more.
Ever since the 80’s, wireless technology has been allowing us to communicate remotely. Rewind back just 30 years ago and we are introduced to 1G, also known as Analog Cellular...
It's International Radio Day! I recently passed my Foundation Level Radio Licence in the UK. I'm now a licenced Radio Ham with a Call Sign. Here's a whistle-stop tour of my journey from kid with a Walkie Talkie to Dad with a new hobby.
Rapid prototyping a long-range wireless sensor system with the modular electronics platform.
