    I'm a software developer and not an engineer so excuse my terminology, etc...

    I am looking to design or purchase a speed detection circuit that will be used to determine the speed of an object that passes by a set of sensors.

    I.e. I want to have the device mounted on a wall and if a jogger passes by, I want to clock their speed. I would like a simple 2 digit LCD display to show the speed.

    I'm not sure it there is an alternative to using a radar type device but I have been searching the net without any results.

    If anyone has a design in mind, I am willing to purchase the design and prototype.
