Ultrasonic Sensor & LCD Shield

Components Used:

  • 1x Arduino Uno R3
  • 1x Ultrasonic Sensor
  • 1x LCD Shield

First Send Trigger Signal HIGH for 10 µSec and then Sense the Echo Pulse. Sensed HIGH time duration on Echo Pulse gives the time required for Sound Waves to travel from Ultrasonic Sensor to Object and back from Object to Ultrasonic Sensor.
