 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi

I'm new to the Arduino Board and wondered if it can handle multiple (ideally 6) ultrasonic sensors?  I've seen examples of using a single sensor but wasn't sure if it could handle more.  Any thoughts/help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I don't think you connected the grounds, Dave.

Yes, you can easily handle six sensors.
The main problem with multiple sensors is not allowing long enough for echoes from previous "pings" to die away before taking a new reading.
