    V1 disassembly

    Does anyone know how to disassemble the V1 safely without damaging it? I wonder if we could extend the front and rear sensors for a better view of the road...

    I dont know how that would work.
    I took apart my V1 a while back, and the sensors are a solid metal block for both the front and the rear, with cavities in it to capture the signals (the front one is much larger than the rear).

    I believe that these cavities are basically waveguides, and if so they must be at precise sizes in length and diameter to capture the right frequencies.

    Hard work often pays off over time, laziness always pays off right now.

    Would you be able to remove the sensors? how are the sensors attached to the board? ...Im thinking we could relocate the sensors and run some long wires to the solder points on the main unit.

    yea, I took apart mine and saw that same metal casing... the only way I was thinking I could do it was maybe fiber optics??... but I'm not sure how well that would work considering the wavelength of radar
