2450 - IEEE Draft Standard for the Performance of Down-the-Road Radar Used in Traffic Speed Measurements

This standard establishes minimally-acceptable performance requirements and associated test procedures for down-the-road (DTR) traffic radar speed-measuring devices. These DTR radar devices transmit modulated or unmodulated continuous-wave (CW) microwave energy, receive the signal reflected from moving vehicles within the microwave beam, process the Doppler shift of the reflected signal to measure and display the speed of the vehicle that is being tracked, and if applicable, the speed of the patrol vehicle. This document does not apply to unmanned radar speed-measuring devices, automated speed enforcement, or DTR radar range measurements.
