Step 1: Make Sure You've Got Everything!

Picture of Make Sure You've Got Everything!
Your gunna need- 4 jumper wires 1 arduino ( I used UNO) 1 breadboard 1 data cable to program the arduino 1 hc-sro4 sensor

Step 2: Plug Your Sensor Into The Breadboard

Picture of Plug Your Sensor Into The Breadboard
Put your sensor into the breadboard along with 4 jumper wires.

Step 3: Attach To Arduino

#define trigPin 3

#define echoPin 2

void setup()

{

Serial.begin(9600);

pinMode(trigPin, OUTPUT);

pinMode(echoPin, INPUT);

}

void loop()

{

int duration, distance;

digitalWrite(trigPin, HIGH);

delayMicroseconds(2000);

digitalWrite(trigPin, LOW);

duration = pulseIn(echoPin, HIGH);

distance = (duration/2) / 29.1;

Serial.println(distance);

Serial.print("cm");

delay(500);

}
