Ultrasonic Measuring Device:


(for information on this sensor, click 
Things needed:-
1) Arduino
2) Ultrasonic Sensor(in this project HC SR04 model is used)

Connections:-

There are 4 pins on this Ultrasonic sensor.
Connect VCC        to arduino 5V
               GND        to arduino GND
               ECHO      to arduino pin 12
               TRIGGER  to arduino pin 13

[Note:- These sensor pins arrangement is for HC SR04 model. The pins may vary for some models.]

Coding:-

/*
 HC-SR04 Ping distance sensor]
 VCC to arduino 5v GND to arduino GND
 Echo to Arduino pin 13 Trig to Arduino pin 12
