Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Research Center of the company Nokia today introduced a number of developments at the exhibition Demo House 2010 in the home for the company Espoo. Among them is the development, received the name of Radio Detection And Ranging (RaDAR) or the concept of a mobile radar. Engineers Finnish companies offer phones equipped with sensors, the effect of which would be similar to the principles of radar. Find the issue of the concept lies in the fact that the mobile phone emits electromagnetic waves sent by the speed and the reflection of the object determines the distance to it. This will build a mobile radar, which measures the velocity of the object or, for example, contactless switch the volume - the closer the user puts a hand to the phone, the louder the music plays. And vice versa.
