Distance Meter with Big Fonts Revision as of 16:07, 23 February 2016 by Sandeep
In this simple tutorial, I will show you how to make a distance meter. It uses a ultrasonic sensor to read distance and display it in custom big fonts on a LCD display. It is powered up by a battery, so that you can take it around for a ride. We also plan to put up a case around it and make a kit. How does that sound?
You'll require the components below to make it happen. Please consider buying them from the Explore Embedded Store to help us make all the awesome stuff.
