The main aim of this project is to detect speed of human. Thus this system proves very beneficial in areas of sports. In order o record the speed of humans, this system uses a handheld radar gun pointing towards the person of whose speed is to be detected. In case of running race, it may be required to detect speed of the participants to take the decision or for some other reason. The proposed system calculates the speed by considering the time taken parameter to travel from start to end point. For this IR transmitter and receiver are installed on either of the road side on the set points. Calculation of the time taken by the human is done by the control unit. The speed of the human is displayed on an LCD Screen.
