IMHO the best way to have your robot measure distance to objects. Fast and accurate.
If you are using Picaxe, you may find this info useful: http://letsmakerobots.com/node/66
i just bought an arduino, there is only tip for connecting PING to the arduino board, or the SRF05 to the Picaxe, anyone know something about the difference between those ultra-sonic sensors. thanks a lot!
First I did this: http://letsmakerobots.com/node/155 (Last two pictures). It wasn't good, because it was only mounted in one of the holes.
Then soldered the pinheader on a perfboard, instead of using a connector, glued the perfboad to the servo horn. I didn't have any problems removing it, since hot-melt glue can be "broken" with a reasonably amount fo force.
My srf-005 only has one set of holes to. It is working, but I am eperiencing this blinking problem
It is probably not related to this but please let me know if you are having similar problems with your.
