Hi there,

I am an Industrial design student working on my final 4th year project.

I am looking for a range sensor to detect vehicles approaching from a 100 meters.

The sensor will be integrated into a product that fits on a bicycle handle bar.

So need to be compact and run on low voltage. The intention is to use a small recharge lithium 5v battery.

I am not an electronics expert, but will try programming the functions using Arduino and snippets of code from

various sources. The sensor will trigger a light at three stages of the vehicles distance from the bike.


Any thoughts on a sensor that could work?
