How Radar Detectors Work
Police radar guns “see” a vehicle by transmitting a microwave pulse. Then they make use of the Doppler Effect: the frequency of the transmitted pulse is compared to the frequency of the reflection, and speed is calculated by using the difference between them.
The idea behind radar detectors is they look for radar “beams” and find them before they can return a strong enough reflection to “illuminate” you. Radar detectors are essentially microwave radio receivers that make noise or flash lights when they sense an incoming signal on specific frequencies.
Types of Detectors:
- Cordless Detectors: Can easily be moved from one vehicle to another and have a cleaner look than corded models, and run off of batteries.
- Remote (Hidden) Mount Detectors: Permanently and typically custom installed into your vehicle, virtually undetectable and invisible.
