Stalker Speedometer Speed Sensor

If the application is in motion, the Speedometer Speed Sensor fits the assignment. Think of it as a Radar Speedometer and more. For example, since it’s direction sensing it can measure speed in both directions. Use it anywhere the object that it’s mounted on is in motion.
