Interfacing VL6180 ToF Range Finder Sensor with Arduino for Distance Measurement

VL6180 differs from other distance sensors as it uses a precise clock to measure the time taken by the light to reflect back from any surface. This gives VL6180 a benefit over other sensors because it’s more accurate and immune to noise.

Smart Blind Stick using Arduino

This Smart stick will have an Ultrasonic sensor to sense distance from any obstacle, LDR to sense lighting conditions and a RF remote using which the blind man could remotely locate his stick. All the feedbacks will be given to the blind man through a Buzzer. Of course you can use a vibrator motor in place of Buzzer and advance a lot more using your creativity.

Control Your Computer with Hand Gestures using Arduino

We use two Ultrasonic sensors to determine the position of our hand and control a media player (VLC) based on the position. I have used this for demonstration, but once you have understood the project, you can do anything by just changing few lines of code and control your favorite application in your favorite way.

Arduino Radar System using Ultrasonic Sensor

This is an interesting project in which we explore the power of an Arduino and Android to create a Surveillance device which uses Arduino and Ultra Sonic Sensor to broadcast the information to a mobile application (Android) using Bluetooth.

Raspberry Pi Distance Measurement

In this project we are going to interface HC-SR04 Ultrasonic sensor module to Raspberry Pi to measure distance. We have previously used Ultrasonic sensor with Raspberry Pi to build Obstacle Avoiding Robot

In this circuit, we used 8bit communication (D0-D7) to connect LCD with Raspberry Pi, however this is not a compulsory, we can also use 4-bit communication (D4-D7), but with 4 bit communication program becomes a bit complex for beginners so just go with 8 bit communication. Here we have connected 10 pins of LCD to Raspberry Pi in which 8 pins are data pins and 2 pins are control Pins.
