How do I calculate the Doppler effect for the DWM1000 modules?

Hi everyone,

I am using the DWM1000 to track the location and speed of a vehicle. The vehicle will be moving at a maximum speed of 20km/h. What effect will the doppler effect have on the module?

The only thing I can think of, is that the PRF will increase or decrease slightly, but how will this effect the range measurements? Any help is welcome.

You can completely ignore the Dopper for speeds like that.

We’ve tracked cars at 200 km/h without worrying about doppler effects. In theory at those speeds you may start to hit issues if using particularly long messages or slow data rates but for most things it’s not an issue. In a way I wish Doppler was an issue then I could go the GPS route and use Doppler to calculate velocity.
