SparkFun Speed Trap

This is a project demonstrating how to display instantaneous speed from a LIDAR on two large 7-segment displays.

Speed displayed on wall

Note the handprints on the wall...

The new LIDAR-Lite from PulsedLight is pretty nice. It outputs readings very quickly. From multiple distance readings we can calculate speed (velocity is the derivative of position).
