The PING))) Ultrasonic Sensor, from the Maker Shed, is one of my favorite sensors. It has a range from .75 inches to 10 feet and is surprisingly accurate and easy to use with an Arduino. This versatile sensor can be used for motion sensing, distance measuring, and object detection making it perfect for robotics. Since the PING))) sensor is well documented and popular you will have no problem finding information on how to integrate it into your next project!

I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I'm a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.
