Topic: Connecting USB Ultrasonic Sensors to the Arduino (Read 531 times) previous topic - next topic


Hi everyone!

I have access to a number of USB based ultrasonic sensors (HRUSB-MaxSonar-EZ).  I believe these output a serial command through the USB link.  Because they are already in serial, can I use an arduino to read a number of these sensors?

I am using an Arduino Leonardo.  If I understand correctly, the only serial port on this board is through the USB, which means I can only have access to one ultrasonic sensor?  Or is there a way/shield that I can use to take in inputs from a number of sensors (say, 4 of these, for directional mapping).

Thanks for the help!


This sensor is not made for a microcontroller. It's made to directly connect to a computer. You will have no way to connect it to arduino. Purchased the version with analog output instead.
