At this site, you can investigate the waves produced by a moving object, and you get to control the speed. You find out how the object's motion produces the change in the observed wave frequency--the Doppler shift. The waves fade away nicely as time passes so the display stays uncluttered and easy to interpret. For a related calculation, click on "Example of Curricular Material." This simulation of the Doppler effect is a Physlet produced at Davidson College.
