Interfacing Ultrasonic Distance Sensor : ASCII Output with PIC Microcontroller

In some of our projects, we may want to measure the distance of an object from a point. Ultrasonic Distance Sensors are the best sensor which provides stable, accurate, precise, non-contact distance measurements from 2cm to 4m. Ultrasonic Sensors can be used to measure distance between moving or stationary objects. Being very accurate and stable, these devices find large number of applications in robotics f ...

Howto Measure RTD (Resistance Temperature Detectors) over long distances

There is a multitude of process parameters nowadays that need to be measured in the industrial environment (temperature, pressure, humidity, force etc.). Out of these, undoubtedly the most common one is temperature, as it influences most manufacturing parameters. It is no wonder then that many solutions have been developed over time to measure it. There are a few general categories any industrial temperatur ...

LED-based time-of-flight IC for object detection and distance measurement

Although Intersil's ISL29501 time-of-flight (ToF) signal processing IC doesn't have anything to do with the lighting applications I normally cover, I felt compelled to bring it to your attention because it's one of the most innovative LED applications I've seen this year. The device requires little more than an external emitter (LED or laser) and a photodiode to implement a complete object detection and dis ...

Distance Measurement using Infrared Sensor with ADC0804 & 8051 Microcontroller

This project primarily consists of four units: Microchip Technology's SST89E54RDA-40-C-PIE, a sensor unit, an ADC0804 ADC component and the LCD module. Along with detecting an obstacle, its exact distance is also calculated and displayed on a 16x2 LCD interfaced to the microcontroller. The IR receiver detects the IR radiations reflected by the object being measured. The output voltage level of this IR senso ...
