Are you talking about a laser or an IR diode? IR diode: pump it with short >1A pulses while keeping an 1 to 10% duty cycle. Laser diode: use TOF (time of flight) measurement method. There are many distance sensors schemes on the net.
Hello, friends! Can anybody share info about laser distance measurement? Thanks in advance, cat
Can you suggest me an Ultrasound distance measurement module which can be connected to a PIC microcontroller? distance should be measured between 2 nodes. It would be good if the range is about 10-20m. Better if the range is larger.
Hi I am working on a new distance measurement sensor for robotics/automation that can measure distances from 0 up to 20 meters. I am interested in what other solutions that are available for distance measurement that works from 0 meters. Does anyone know about such a sensor? Oyvind
I want to use ultrasonic sensor for distance measurement but I don't know how it actually works. can we connect US sensor directly to 8051 or we have to build some oscillator circuitry. I want that the transmitter goes ON as soon as one of the pin of 8051 is made high. Is it possible?

can anyone help me, how can i measure distance using this sensor (TS601) ultrasonic & PIC 16F877A or 16F73 plz anyone help with code &
Hello! This doesn't look like a distance measurement sensor, but a "presence" check sensor. This is generally used with a disk with holes. Depending whether there is a hole between the diode and the sensor, light will be detected or no. This is used for optical rotation speed measurement. Depending on the number of holes, you will get an (...)

For measurement of distance to moving objects FSK is widely used, where VCO constantly switches between two frequencies F1 and F2. (difference between F1 and F2 is about 1MHz) After calculating doppler shift and phase for F1 and F2, phase difference gives distance information. As i understand, it is possible, because when using single VCO it (...)

One method used is IR tape measurement substitute devices is to modulate the IR emitter with a sine wave superimposed on a DC level. The receiver picks off the sine wave and compares the phase with the transmitted phase. A calibration point is used to compensate for the time delay through the electronics. I suppose

hello, i am using an atmega32 at 5v with 16mhz crystal. i have written the code for the ultrasonic distance measurement sensor. this is the code --- #include #include #include #define lcd_port PORTD #define LCD_EN 0x80 #define LCD_RS 0x20 unsigned int count, dist, temp, t; // C
I fear, that none of the suggested solutions works at 5 m distance. In principle, you can measure distance by triangulation with high accuracy, but unfortunately, you need a large base distance. Unfortunately too, you didn't tell a word about resolution and accuracy. For higher accuracy, laser time-of-flight and possibly optical FMCW (...)
The said distance sensor uses a special integrated optical device from Sharp rather than a simple LED and a phototransistor. The latter are good for a reflective switch, but don't allow distance measurement.
Hi Friend what all things you tried? i think you use two encoders if you want to measure the turning parts else you connect the encoder to the wheel of the robot, calibrate that for 1 rotation in distance. now start counting the distance what are the problems that you are facing? please post it then only anyone can help you regards
Ir works better for smaller distances. For 1-5m I would recommend you sonars. Off course it also depends distance to what want to measure. Best regards, Micard

Hi I am trying to do distance measurements between two radios. Now I have found a method I am confident will work, and does work in my simulations. As I know only the basics of RF design I had hope to find a near complete transceiver as an IC and make a circuit board for it. Unfortunately it seems that due to a few special requirements that ther
Hi, I need to plot the oscillations of a vibrating system in PC application. During oscillation the complete distance (peak to peak) is around 7 cm. I have successfully completed PC application , interfacing and micro controller part. For measuring distance, initially I used sonar but its resolution (1 inch) was not suitable for me.. I jumped to I

I am also thinking of using max3806 with laser diode. I fear, you're not aware of the complexity of laser distance measurement.
Hello, I have a project that I want to do using lasers to detect a persons shoulder from no more than 3 meters away and no less than 2 meters away. I have looked at other detection solutions such as IR and other devices but due to the material type (t-shirt) and the device having to work out side I have ruled those out. Unless you think it can s
Hello! Let's assume that we have simple FMCW distance measurement system with linear frequency sweep from F1 to F2. Sweep duration is T. ADC frequency is enough to digitize 128 points for each sweep duration T. Then we do some windowing and perform an FFT. For example 1024pt FFT (yes, i know about 128 points and interpolation, but it is from real
hey, need to display distance using 8051 and hc-sr04 on LCD. i have the code for distance measurement and LCD but don't know how to display it please help the code is attached.
I doubt you will get 1mm accuracy with the Sharp sensor, let alone 0.1mm. I cannot see ultrasound being viable for that sort of accuracy. I would have said light was your best option. A coherent laser source using interferometry would be the most accurate but expensive and incremental. A modulated laser phase shift system might be the best
HI friends i am working on distance measuring sensor and i am going to display the output on LCD i got the output but , how can I get the output in increment form mean ,just like digital counter on LCD. plz help!!!!!......
Hi, I am measuring the distance using range sensor SRFO5. The sensor is having the maximum range of 400 cm. When I trigger the sensor, it releases echo signal which is used to measure the distance of the object. The echo signal will become zero when the object is detected. The counter value increments which measures the echo width an
What is the distance? For distances of a few feet, an ultrasonic sound transmitter and sensor is often used since the slow speed of sound compared to light makes it much easier to measure the distance from the time the reflection takes to travel to the target and return to the receiver. If you want to use light then the easiest would be (...)
To measure distance from time-of-flight, you'll need an absolute timing reference. It's missing in your setup. Generally, you'll get three distance vectors that aren't alligned to x-y-z direction.
For such short range ultrasonic range meters are easier to make. Doing it with light needs picosecond pulses and a very fast-response receiver. Check laser distance meters to see how it is done.
As I understand you need to 4 meter distance to be measured with 1 mm resolution I will recommend to you to use pulsed laser concept if target is reflective ...... I mean pulse laser with some finite time and and detect the counts for known distance for finite period then you can use the same logic for change in distance.... kindly note this (...)
