JeysonZG 2 Posted August 26, 2014 Share Posted August 26, 2014 - INTRODUCTION Hi everybody, I want to share a library for controlling a 4-pins PING sensor (HC-SR04 ICStation) basically, although you can also control the 3-pins PING))) sensor conventional of Parallax (URL). This library is a modification of the Caleb Zulawski's library for PING))) sensors. I made basic improvements in calculations, I added a function to calculate the distance in millimeters and added the option to change the "input trigger signal" [10uS for HC-SR04 and 5uS for PING)))] - CHANGE LOG v2.1 (26/08/2014) * Fixed calculations of distance in inches. v2.0 (25/08/2014) * Fixed problems with measurements adjustments.* New function for modification of a single unit. v1.0 (24/08/2014) * Basic modification of Caleb Zulawski's library.* Added the calculation of distace in millimeters.* Identified problems with measurements adjustments. - TESTING Tested on: Tiva C (TM4C123GXL) & Arduino UNO R3 - COMPARISON SECTION A small comparison between the 2 sensors is: * HC-SR04 sensor: 1. Working Voltage: 5V (DC) 2. Output signal: Electric frequency signal, high level 5V, 0V low level. 3. Sensor angle: Not more than 15 degrees. 4. Detection distance: 2cm-450cm. 5. High precision: Up to 0.3cm 6. Input trigger signal: TTL impulse 10uS 7. Mode of connection: 1. VCC 2. TRIG ( T ) 3. ECHO ( R ) 4. GND * PING))) sensor: 1. Working Voltage: 5V (DC) 2. Output signal: Electric frequency signal, high level 5V, 0V low level. 3. Sensor angle: Not more than 15 degrees. 4. Detection distance: 2cm-300cm. 5. High precision: Up to 0.3cm 6. Input trigger signal: TTL impulse 5us 7. Mode of connection: 1. GND 2. VCC 3. SG - DOWNLOAD SECTION v2.1: Ping4Pins v2.1.zip v2.0 (Not recommended): Ping4Pins v2.0.zip v1.0 (Not recommended): Ping4Pins v1.0.zip - INSTRUCTIONS OF INSTALLATION 1. Download the latest version of the library2. Unzip the zip-folder. 3. Copy the "Ping4Pins" folder in the location of the libraries depending of your trainer: * For Arduino: <Arduino IDE directory>\hardware\libraries\ * For Tiva C: <Energia IDE directory>\hardware\lm4f\libraries\ Note: If you used an older version of the library, I recommend deleting the folder and copy the new folder "Ping4Pins". - EXAMPLES SECTION In the "examples" folder are 5 examples for Arduino and 5 examples for Tiva. I'll post the example # 1: /*Example # 1 for TivaC / ArduinoCreated by Jeyson Zu bluehash and reaper7 2 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
