Ultrasonic Distance Sensor for Bit:Bot (BitBot)

by 4Tronixs

Ultrasonic Distance Sensor for Bit:Bot

NB. Bit:Bot not included

Ready-Soldered, just attach to your Bit:Bot with the screws provided and off you go.

Use Microsoft PXT to read the distance to an obstacle, then program your Bit:Bot to avoid it.

Both Ping and Echo signals are on the same pin (Pin 15)

The sensor soldered into the PCB is robust and reliable but does have a drawback in that you cannot access the micro-USB connector on the micro:bit unless you either remove the micro:bit or use a right-angled USB cable. Consider using the right-angled USB cable with this option
