Arduino Based Distance Measurement using Ultrasonic Sensor

Ultrasonic sensors are great tools to measure distance without actual contact and used at several places like water level measurement, distance measurement etc. This is an efficient way to measure small distances precisely. In this project we have used an Ultrasonic Sensor to determine the distance of an obstacle from the sensor. Basic principal of ultrasonic distance measurement is based on ECHO. When soun ...

Ultrasonic Dimmer

I have been working on this project for a while and whilst it is still under development I decided to write a short guide after several requests to do so. The dimmer uses an interrupt driven XL-Maxsonar EZ1 ultrasound range finder to measure the distance between the sensor and your hand. By moving your hand up and down over the sensor you can increase or decrease the amount of light emitted by the connected ...

Arduino Ultrasonic Parking Spotter

For my first instructable, I'd like to present The Parking Spotter. This is not a new concept, I know. However, this build was done specifically to suit my needs/wants/materials already in my possession. Typically, a project begins with an idea, parts are then gathered, and the building commences. In my case I looked around at the parts and material that I had on-hand, browsed Instructables (a daily occurre ...

Arduino Project # 1 – Make an Ultrasonic Distance Calculator

Arduino Project – The distance calculator I have been playing with Arduino (micro-controller) for about 2 years now and I am becoming more and more passionate about circuits. For those who are not aware of Arduino, check out my article “Arduino – A Guide for Beginners“. Recently, I was testing some new components that I ordered, which included an ultrasonic sensor and an LCD. I found an article online that ...

Ultrasonic Range detector using Arduino and the SR04 Ultrasonic sensor

his is a preliminary instructable that will take you through the steps I took to get the SR04 ULTRASONIC SENSOR  connected  and working to the Arduino. It will then be incorporated to my mini environment monitor.  Eventually, if it all fits, it will end up in a Startrek  toy tricorder casing I found in my junk box.. Step 1: Connecting the SR04 Ultrasonic Sensor to the Arduino Step 2: Parts List 1           ...

Arduino LCD Project for Measuring Distance with Ultrasonic Sensor

In LESSON 18 you learned how to use an ultrasonic sensor to measure distance, and in LESSON 19 you learned how to connect an LCD to the arduino. In this lesson we will combine what you have learned to create a circuit for measuring distance, and displaying results on an LCD display. - for-measuring-distance-with-ultrasonic-sensor/#sthash.n59B0VNh.dpuf You can use the schematic below to connect the circuit. ...

Arduino Ping Ultrasonic Range Finder Code

The Ping))) is an ultrasonic range finder from Parallax. It detects the distance of the closest object in front of the sensor (from 2 cm up to 3m). It works by sending out a burst of ultrasound and listening for the echo when it bounces off of an object. The Arduino board sends a short pulse to trigger the detection, then listens for a pulse on the same pin using the pulseIn() function. The duration of this ...

Ultrasonic Tape Measure using Arduino

Have you ever wanted an ultrasonic tape measure, like this Stanley? (See picture). Well, I have but then I am a Lazy Old Geek. I don’t really need one but I thought I’d try to make one. And naturally, I thought of an Arduino. August 2012 update: I just found out the software used in this Instructable does not work in the latest Arduino environment, 1.0. I think it is the LCDKeypad library but haven't found ...

Ultrasonic Combination Switch using an Arduino

Time for a follow-up to the Single Button Combination Lock by creating another oddball type of switch/lock. To activate this switch we make use of a Parallax Ping))) Ultrasonic sensor, an Arduino-style board and some other hardware – to make a device that receives a four-number code which is made up of the distance between a hand and the sensor. If Arduino and ultrasonic sensors are new to you, please read ...

Arduino ultrasonic range finder

Hello, in this project i want to show and explain you a range sensor with ultrasonic and a 20x04 lcd screen. I wrote the code for this project myself and added lots of comments, so that everybody can understand it and use it for other projects (maybe a light range sensor?!). It is easy to build and much more easier to program, it just requires a few cheap parts and can run on battery, for a portable rangefi ...
