Also don't forget to put in a calibration variable - while this sensor is very precise (highly repeatable results) you need to verify accuracy (avg distance from true temp) against another trusted source.  Finally, in my method, it is worth pointing out that I measure a set number of cycles and the timing of those cycles depends on the sensor frequency. Since the frequency of the smt160-30 is temperature dependent, this code will take slightly longer to run (and may be slightly more accurate) when measuring something cold. Good luck!
