DIY 360 Degree SODAR Device
Hello burstolavaThank you for your reply of May 5, 2016.2: 27 PMNow the monitor-console is working properlyThank you for your effortsgreetings from SwitzerlandUrsT
Hey, so I've downloaded both Processing 2.2.1 and Processing 3.0.2, and the UI seems to work okay on my windows machine. I wrote the tab completion just to make the "console" feel more like a console. But it doesn't have every feature of a console because I wrote this from scratch. If you haven't typed anything, hitting tab will not "complete" because it doesn't know what you are trying to say. But if you type "sp" and then hit the tab key, it should tab complete to "speed."

Hello burstolavaI have Processing 2.2.1 (Processing revision 0227) installed.When I run the file "UI.pde" appears a second window with the "radar screen" and which continuous moving green sector. Objects in the area of the sensor are correctly identified and displayedNow if I press the PC key "Tab", nothing happens. The black box to the right of the "radar screen" remains empty.greetings from Switzerland
Hello! If I'm reading this correctly, you are having issues with the Tab completion in the Processing code? Is the program not completing the tab correctly or the command is not executing correctly? The only software you should need would be from Processing and Arduino to run the code. We've only tested on Linux and Windows though.
I have copiedyour DIY 360 ° -Radar with small changes. I have a adafruit-slip ring used anda 1: 1 gear driven.With the software of github.com all is well.However, I do not succeed, by Tab key the various nodes (speed / rpm, pps,history, move, clear, stop, start, exit, help) display.What am I doing wrong?I might need additional software?My email-adress:email@example.com from Switzerland
Thank youI am interested in a range of 10cm-50cm.What precision should I expect?Alternatively, a link to the sensor manual is appreciated - yoav-medan
Apologies for the comment. I figured it out. I actually had to modify the sodar code to work with HC-SR04. Next time I'll stop, take a deep breath and relax my mind before opening my big mouth lol. I guess I was just frustrated after the hours of studying. Thank you so much for your response! - kparrott11
There is a set of comments on this page that parameshwarnp asked me regarding these errors. My responses to his questions and step 7 should be useful in getting your program entirely functional.
Hi, the accuracy of this device will be entirely dependent upon the PING sensor specifications. The furthest distance measurable by this sensor is ~3 meters, but the PING sensor manual would be a better reference for the sensor accuracy and such.
Hi,I am trying to create this project and to verify that the code is work, I connected the arduino to the distance sensor. Then I uploaded the sodar code to the arduino. Then, ran the Processing code but nothing appears on the processing "radar looking" screen.It is as if the sensor isnt working or the arduino and processing arent communication. I assumed the latter so I also tried to upload the serial code (not sure if i needed to upload that) but I am getting errors in the code. The errors say that many variables arent declared. 1. Must I upload the "serial" arduino code in order for the project to work?2. If so how do I fix these errors?3. If not how do I get the "dots" to appear in processing?PLEASE HELP
HiWhat level of distance measurement accuracy may one expect from this setup?Thank you
