Hello there, and welcome back. In this blog, we will discuss the Orange Raspberry Pi Advanced Kit. This kit is only available on smartx.in.
If you want to learn about the Raspberry Pi and are interested in the Python programming language, then this orange Raspberry Pi Kits is for you.
You will not only learn advanced Raspberry Pi components with this kit, but you will also gain a solid understanding of the Python programming language.
This kit includes a variety of components that will help you learn Raspberry Pi programming more effectively.
There are a few other similar kits on our website; however, if you are completely new to the Raspberry Pi section, we recommend that you start your Raspberry Pi learning journey with the kits listed below.
So that was an introduction to the orange Raspberry Pi Advance Kit; in the following section of this blog, we will learn about interfacing the orange Raspberry Pi kit’s components with the Raspberry Pi.
Ultrasonic Sensor With The Raspberry Pi
As you may know, ultrasonic sensors are used to measure distance. Ultrasonic sensors are widely used in obstacle detection robots and do-it-yourself radar projects.
Similar sensors, such as infrared sensors, LIDAR sensors, and sonar sensors, are available on the market and can be used for similar purposes, but we will not go into detail about them in this article. I’ll discuss them in future articles.
So that was the basic overview of the ultrasonic sensor. In the following section, we will learn how to connect the ultrasonic sensor to the Raspberry Pi.
How Does The Ultrasonic Sensor Work?
As we all are a member of the DIY community, I’m sure you’re familiar with how an ultrasonic sensor works. If you already know about it, you can skip ahead to the coding section of this blog. However, if you are new to this, you can continue with this section.
The Ultrasonic sensor work is similar to Radar sensor work. The transmitter in radar generates radio waves (sound waves), an electromagnetic wave that travels through the air and returns when it encounters an object in its path. The distance is then calculated using a basic high school formula, which is provided below.
Distance = Time x Speed
Time = The amount of time it takes for the sound wave to reach the receiver.
Speed = The sound wave’s speed.
