Detailed Description

This class is being replaced by UltraSonic

This Grove Ultrasonic sensor is a non-contact distance measurement module which is compatible with the Grove system. It is designed for easy modular project usage with industrial performance. Detection ranges from 3 cm (1.2") to 4 m (13'1.5") and works best when the object is within a 30 degree angle relative to the sensor.

// upm::GroveUltraSonic *sonar = NULL;
while (running) {
int width = sonar.getDistance();
printf("Echo width = %d\n", width);
printf("Distance inches = %f.2\n\n", width / 148.0);

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

GroveUltraSonic ( int  pin)

Instantiates a GroveUltraSonic object

pinpin for triggering the sensor for distance and for receiving pulse response

GroveUltraSonic object destructor.

Member Function Documentation

Returns the echo's pulse width from the sensor in microseconds. Divide by 58 to convert distance to centimetres. Divide by 148 to convert distance to inches.

std::string name ( )

Return name of the component

bool working ( )

Returns true while the sensor is busy waiting for the echo pulse
