The ckt mentioned is apparently too simple-minded to account
for much of anything. I'm a stranger here myself, and just saw
it in a book on bots. I would suspect, however, that if you
send the amplified pulses straight to a PIC, and actually
determine the frequency of the return pulses, then you could
measure velocities directly. Sounds fairly easy [this is called
"bait" - any nibbles?].
