Ship from USA! Free shipping. The PCB layout is fully optimized and the digital circuitry is separated from the power supply circuit, thus reducing interference. Quality components are used, for example, the high current tolerant coil is used to boost the robustness of the circuitry. Optional higher Vcc voltages 5.

Low-cost ultrasonic rangefinders along with a microcontroller are used to measure the distance to obstacles and if they are close enough to provide feedback to the user inform of beeps or vibrations.
The project is made on a small single layer PCB. It is a portable project which is mounted on a metal plate such that it can be fixed on any belt type structure. The sensors are not mounted on the PCB but they are mounted in the front of the plate and connected to the main board using wires.
For sensing distance to obstacles, an HC-SR04 sensor module has been used. It has an ultrasonic transducer which generates the ultrasonic waves, an ultrasonic receiver and control circuitry built on a small PCB. As soon as the HC-SR04 receives this pulse it sends out ultrasonic waves and waits for it to go to the obstacle and come back to the sensor.
The sensor then emits a pulse on the ECHO line whose width is equal to this time. By simple calculation, we can find the distance to the obstacle. Two such sensors are used in this project to find an obstacle in front and downward of the user.
Trigger given as input to the sensor by the microcontroller and Echo is the input to the microcontroller from the sensor that is used to sense the obstacle. Timerl is used as a counter which is initialized to 0 as soon as the trigger is detected.
It starts incrementing unless and until an echo is detected. Ultrasonic Sensor Ultrasonic ranging module HC - SR04 provides 2cm - cm non-contact measurement function, the ranging accuracy can reach to 3mm. The modules include ultrasonic transmitters, receiver and control circuit. As soon as an obstacle is detected buzzer is activated. TIMER1 for our sensor interfacing of 8 bit.
The resistor and the capacitors values from the datasheet are lkohm and lOuF respectively. The resistor-capacitor combination gives the RC time delay for the microcontroller for it to operate properly. The PIC has an active low reset, the capacitor initially at OV charges via the supply through a -ohm resistance in series. In other words to give a pure square wave to the microcontroller. A basic rule for placing the crystal on the board is that it should be as close as possible to avoid any interference in the clock.
The crystal we used is of 8MHZ. As circuit needed 5V dc regulated supply we supplied 9V regulated dc through a voltage regulator LM which provides an output as fixed 5V supply as per our requirement. It is developed by Lab Center electronics. It is useful software as it has many In-built libraries. We just have to install the library and use the appropriate components.
It is the best solution for developing code for PIC devices. It features intuitive IDE, powerful compiler with advanced optimizations, lots of hardware and software libraries, and additional tools that will help you in your work. The compiler comes with a comprehensive Help file and lots of ready-to-use examples designed to get you started in no time. Compiler license includes free upgrades and a product lifetime tech support, so you can rely on our help while developing.
Impact Factor JCC : 6. Except for the Sensor, everything is mounted on the same PCB. After soldering the components we checked if there is any short circuit scenario. We checked for reset circuitry is it working properly or not? Also, we programmed microcontroller with a test program which blinks the test led on B port. We checked the Sensor test program on PIC board.
There is slot provided on the metal plate for the interfacing wires of both the sensors.
