Hello !! I'm a french student.
But I have a problem to use a sensor with my arduino mega.  :smiley-roll:
So with the HRLV-MaxSonar-EZ01, an ultrasonic sensor, I want to get a distance by a TTL signal. But I obtain random values.

My program :
byte distance;
const int impulsion = 10;


void setup ()
{
  Serial2.begin(9600); // 
  Serial.begin (9600);
  pinMode (distance, INPUT);
  pinMode (impulsion, OUTPUT);
}

void loop ()
{
 
  digitalWrite (impulsion, HIGH);//launch an impluse to start the echo
  delayMicroseconds (21);
  digitalWrite (impulsion, LOW);//stot the impulsion to stop the echo
 
  distance = Serial2.read ();//get the distance
  Serial.println (distance);//print the distance on the serial monitor
  delay(500);
 

And I get values like 83, 53, 5 ... in firt I get 255  :smiley-eek:
