Ultrasonic Sonar URF 1000
Measurement and Proximity Detection
The URF 1000 series ultrasonic sensing modules provide distance measurement capability to embedded microcontroller or SBC devices. The URF 1000 control module (DSM) implements both proximity and distance measurement in a single embedded device. The DSM is ICSP (in circuit serial) programmable andprovides separate TTL control and ICSP ports to ease in circuit debugging. The URF 1000 series detection devices can detect stationary objects up to 3 meters. Distance measurement is implemented via a host controller which triggers and receives a modulated TTL signal which can beused by a microcontroller to calculate distance via 40KHz ultrasonic bursts.
