Get object/distance detection in your project using the low-cost HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Distance Module from Elegoo. Using the same principle as bats (Echo location), this module uses Trigger and Echo pin to send a signal and listen for it to be 'bounced back'. With a few lines of code you'll be detecting objects for your project. This module is the perfect option for detecting objects between 2cm-500cm in front of your project.
As this module is a 5V sensor, it will work great with Arduino and other 5V microcontrollers. You'll simply need to wire the device up to your board and configure the trigger and echo pins as Output/Input pins respectively. Once you've got it configured correctly, use your code to take the Input reading from the Echo pin and plug it into the distance formula: distance = (traveltime/2) x speed of sound to get a distance reading.
It's really that easy. There's even a library for Arduino, NewPing, that makes the process even easier for you. We've written a pretty comprehensive guide on how you can use this module in your projects. It's guaranteed to get you up to speed as fast as possible.
If you need a sensor that will work with 3.3V then check out this!
