Parallax PING))) Ultrasound Sensor

$38.00

DESCRIPTION

Integrate the Parallax's PING)))™ ultrasonic sensor into your MINDS-i Robot to gain an easy method of distance measurement and autonomous obstacle detection and avoidance. The Ping sensor measures distance using sonar; an ultrasonic (well above human hearing) pulse is transmitted from the unit and distance-to-target is determined by measuring the time required for the echo return. Output from the PING))) sensor is a variable-width pulse that corresponds to the distance to the target and integrates seamlessly into the Arduino Micro-Controller & Software Package.
