HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Ping Sensor Arduino Tutorial


Hi everyone, Just the word ultrasonic sounds cool to me! It makes me think of something fast, hi-tech, and hard to understand. Fact is, I think I’m right about everything but the hard to understand part, which I realized after purchasing the HC-SR04 ultrasonic distance sensor and hooking it up for a test run. The uncanny resemblance to Wall-E just makes it even better. I can think of a whole list of applications of this technology for my future projects; particularly for autonomous robots and UAVs (Unmanned Air Vehicles). Hopefully

This is my first post on Treehouse Projects, and I hope it will be the beginning of a lot more to come in the future. Prosthetic body parts have always intrigued me. The research I have witnessed and read about in the field has always inspired me to try and find solutions to assist people with disabilities. By no means is this project an innovative step in that direction, but it is a first for me, and I hope future versions will be much more practical and potentially useful from
