Intro: Blind Spot Detection: Arduino + Distance Sensor + Matlab GUI
This project studies the feasibility of using an HC-SR04 ultrasonic distance sensor to provide an indication of a vehicle in the drivers blind spot. Please post questions below and I will be happy to answer.
Step 1: Test Ultrasonic Sensor and Matlab Integration
Mount single sensor to car exterior and monitor data using Matlab GUI.
Step 2: 3D Case for Device
3D print case with variable sensor angles.
- Ignore the rough surface on the top. I still have to remove that support material.
- The 2 holes may be slightly to far apart, which makes it extremely tight when sliding in the ultrasonic sensor.
- Update: need to make holes closer together.
