obstacle avoidance Using Ultrasonic sensor

ByJovin RichardiCHards company

What is a obstacle avoidance robot?

Obstacle avoidance is a means of a robot being able to move around in an unknown environment without colliding with surrounding objects

What is a sensor?A sensor is a device that detects and responds to some type of input from the physical environment.

The specific input could be light, heat, motion, moisture, pressure.

The output is generally a signal that is converted to human-readable form.

Introduction to Ultrasonic SensorWhat is a ultrasonic? ULTRA - BEYOND SONIC SOUND The sound beyond human hearing range (20,000Hz ) is known as ultrasonic. Ultrasonic sensor? Ultrasonic sensorsare sensorsthat convertultrasoundwaves toelectrical signalsor vice versa.

How does an ultrasonic sensor works?How does a bat sense distance

Bats sense distance using sound. They emit sound waves and receive back reflected waves. The time it takes to receive the waves back provides them with a very good estimate of the distance. This is exactly how ultrasonic sensors estimate distance.

An ultrasonic sensor has two parts:A transmitter that sends out a signal that humans cannot hearA receiver that receives the signal after it has bounced off nearby objectsThe sensor sends out its signal and determines how long the signal takes to come back.

If the object is very close to the sensor, the signal comes back quickly

If the object is far away from the sensor, the signal takes longer to come back

If objects are too far away from the sensor, the signal takes so long to come back (or is very weak when it comes back) that the receiver cannot detect it

SERVO MOTORWhat is a servo motor?Aservomotoris a rotary actuator or linear actuator that allows for precise control of angular or linear position, velocity and acceleration. It consists of a suitablemotorcoupled to a sensor for position feedback.

Servo Motor ConnectionServo motors have three wires:RedBlackYellow or Orange

Red wire - power wire (connected to the 5V pin on the Arduino board) Black wire Ground (connected to a ground pin on the Arduino board) Yellow wire signal pin (connected to a digital pin on the Arduino board)
