Modify the ultrasonic range finder sensor - your opinion ??? Answered
Hi ... I would like to know your opinion about this ultrasonic range finder sensor. I bought this "JCB ultrasonic distance measurer". I bought it for it's ability to measure up to 18m.
I tried it ... and happy with the distance ... BUT ... a realised few issues (for me).
1. I think, it use 2 pulses to make the measurement. It's like ... Tuk - Tuk ... end then cca 1 sek is the result.
2. when I move ... it will NOT tell me the results ... probably, because of those 2 impulses - I think, the device is comparing those two TUK TUK ... and if there is a difference, it tells me ERROR.
How ever ... my question is ... if I would take out just the sensor, do you think, I could make it to run only with one TUK - to be faster ... and do you think, then I could make measurements while moving ??? (just to show me the actual distance ???)
I would like to make something like the arduino PING sensor ... but with greater distance.
EDIT : I forgot to mention, that I want to use it with Arduino ... I don't need the device to work on its own. I would just like to know, if the sensor on its own (taken out of this device) + arduino could measuring by movement and with the same distance (max 18m) ???
Looking forward to your opinions. Thank you.
