Introduction: How to Make a Simple Arduino Ultrasonic Radar System ..

Picture of How to Make a Simple Arduino Ultrasonic Radar System ..

i see many project on net about ultrasonic radar system ....finally i made this here i share this project with you which is easy to make with ultrasonic sensor arduino and servo motor ....follow the step ...

part to be required

1.arduino microcontroller uno

2. servo motor

3. ultrasonic sensor

4.basic stucture to mount

5. jumper wires

6.arduino ide

7.processing 2.1 ide

download arduino ide

download processing org.

Step 1: Make a Bread Board Circuit and Rigid Structure to Mount Arduino Board ..

Arduino and processing program

Download program from

Go to Learn page - Make Arduino Radar

first upload the arduino program to arduino board

open processing ide ....

copy past the program i give here for processing .....and press play button ...

if everything is ok then you will see the radar screen as shown in above figure.....

Step 2: Demo Video...

Please help me i want to increase the speed of servo

that is ideal speed i used to make this . if you increase the speed of servo motor then you will not get accurate graph .

heyya there,we used your coding and technique to make this radar but I didn't understood the last section of coding for processing ide. I f possible could you please send me a more elaborative version of comments for that piece,asap.

Hello please specify the Position of programming you didn't understand . or mail me your specific query to

Thanks for sharing this amazing project! I do have one question though:

Is it possible to display the radar you made on your phone using a bluetooth module?

ujash patel (author)TomLamaker2016-09-16

everything is possible but the question is same how ? . you can try to plot a graph on visual basic with 2 Hco5 I am doing something similar to this . you will get intractable or complete guidance on my blog after completion of project :)

Excuse me ,if i want to use two of ultrasonic or more than 2 by to show on radar system which i will to use IDE Processing and IDE Arduino program in working . What should i do. advise me please, thank you.

ujash patel (author)darross2016-09-16

Hello you can use 2 ultrasonic sensor but that will be much more complicated . it will take lots of time to interface both and result will be same . because you can only access one serial command at a time so only one will give you graph :)

arduinoport = new Serial(this, Serial.list()[0], 9600);

My arduino uno r3 is connected to com6, so i changed the [0] to [6], but it doesn't i fix it?

zyo.kengyoo (author)zyo.kengyoo2015-06-30

This what i faced,any resolution? oh ya, forgot to say, u did a perfect job on processing!!!

ujash patel (author)zyo.kengyoo2016-09-16

hello please change com port of Arduino from device and printer property .

I'm not familiar with processing but I assume it's quiet the same as in every other programming language. The thing you get by calling Serial.list() is an array and you address thingsis this array like this: "example_array[0]" This will give you the first entry of the list called example_array.

Now in your case calling the function Serial.list() returns such a list. Let's say something like this: {"COM1", "COM2", "COM6"} Now in order to select the port "COM6" it would be Serial.list()[2] because if you start counting from zero the third entry(COM6) is addressed by the number 2.

I hope I could help even though the response comes very late ^^

Hi, This is so far the closest I've seen to displaying ultrasonic visually. What I am trying to do is make my own Ultrasound Device, similar to the machines that are used in hospitals to see a baby in someone's belly. Is this even possible with these components or am I looking for something that is not available?

please share the program for arduino ide and programming ide thank you in advance.
