I am doing a technical presentation about RADAR and LiDAR. I understand that LiDAR is several times more accurate and capable of producing really detailed 3-D maps of their surroundings, while RADARs tend to lag behind in accuracy.
Several sources indicate that the shorter wavelength signals from LiDAR contribute to its higher accuracy, but they don't really explain why.
This webpage explains that higher frequency signals yield more accurate data in RADARs, but does not really explain why either: http://www.radartutorial.eu/07.waves/Waves%20and%20Frequency%20Ranges.en.html
There are some posts that mention the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, but I don't think an explanation at the atomic level is really relevant nor required to explain this phenomenon.
Can anybody give an equation or state a scientific concept as to why sensors/apparatuses that use higher frequency signals yield more accurate data?
