Hi guys this is my first tutorial, I've just started a few months ago learning electronics (previously I've just knew how to program in C and Python). When I finished this project (took me about 5 hours or something) I've decided to share to help anyone that is starting in electronics.
What’s this project about?
Basically we have an Ultrasonic sensor that measures the distance and the LED’s bar graph will light up according to our distance from the sensor and as we get closer the buzzer beeps in a different way. This circuit can work as a parking sensor! It's easy and cheap.
Check my website for more electronic projects and information.
Check this video to watch the circuit working
1x 74HC595 8 Bit Shift Register
8x LED’s (for example: 3x red, 3x yellow, 2x green)
9x 220 Ohm Resisters
1x Ultrasonic Sensor (for exemple: HC-SR04)
