1  Using Arduino / Sensors / Re: Non-pending pulseIn() function??? on: January 06, 2013, 01:08:54 am

Thanks for the intro to your new library.  Yup, I agree with all the shortcomings to the introductory approaches to Ping implementation.  I'm looking forward to using your library.  One project, several Ping devices on one platform. Another project, multiple LV-MaxSonar-EZ0 rangefinders (I have yet to field test these) on a 4mph companion (Wild Thumper) for my walks.  Additional project, two IR-Beacon and Ping-sensing robots in cat&mouse scheme with simple mapping and utilization/avoidance of shields within their arena.  A lot of projects bidding for my time... I will share success as these projects mature.

Thanks again for the fine lead,

Thanks for your fast reply.  I will look into this library.  I'm new to the Arduino platform and had not noticed this library.
At first glance, I think I can integrate this into a densely packed service routine environment.

3  Using Arduino / Sensors / Non-pending pulseIn() function??? on: January 03, 2013, 01:43:10 pm

I am looking to implement several ultrasonic sensors (3 to 5) and I cannot afford to wait on pulseIn() to return the time delay.  In my implementation, the arena of interest to the robot is 12 x 8 feet.  At 12 feet, the ultrasonic propagation time (out and back) is over 20ms.  Is there a library, similar to Servo library, where non-pending equivalent to pulseIn() functions have been implemented?

Thanks for any suggestions or leads,
