 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I have a ultrasound hscr 04 sensor hooked up to my arduino mega 2560 and I am not getting rwsults other than what I think the max timeout results
I tried two different libraries as well as trying myself to time the echo and It just timeouts
I can hear the sensor clicking on time but im just not getting a reading,
I don't know what can be wrong its simple to wire and I've checked 100xs
I tried pulseing high and low with the same result : /
any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated

i've got the same ultrasonic sensor, and got it working on an Chipkit Uno32 with this code.

Code:
/* Ping))) Sensor
 
   This sketch reads a PING))) ultrasonic rangefinder and returns the
   distance to the closest object in range. To do this, it sends a pulse
   to the sensor to initiate a reading, then listens for a pulse
   to return.  The length of the returning pulse is proportional to
   the distance of the object from the sensor.
     
   The circuit:
    * +V connection of the PING))) attached to +5V
    * GND connection of the PING))) attached to ground
    * SIG connection of the PING))) attached to digital pin 6
    * Echo connection of the PING))) attached to digital pin 7

   This example code is in the public domain.

 */

// this constant won't change.  It's the pin number
// of the sensor's output:
const int pingPinIn = 7;
const int pingPinOut = 6;

void setup() {
  // initialize serial communication:
  Serial.begin(9600);
}

void loop()
{
  // establish variables for duration of the ping,
  // and the distance result in inches and centimeters:
  long duration, inches, cm;

  // The PING))) is triggered by a HIGH pulse of 2 or more microseconds.
  // Give a short LOW pulse beforehand to ensure a clean HIGH pulse:
  pinMode(pingPinIn, OUTPUT);
  digitalWrite(pingPinIn, LOW);
  delayMicroseconds(2);
  digitalWrite(pingPinIn, HIGH);
  delayMicroseconds(5);
  digitalWrite(pingPinIn, LOW);

  // The same pin is used to read the signal from the PING))): a HIGH
  // pulse whose duration is the time (in microseconds) from the sending
  // of the ping to the reception of its echo off of an object.
  pinMode(pingPinOut, INPUT);
  duration = pulseIn(pingPinOut, HIGH);

  // convert the time into a distance
  inches = microsecondsToInches(duration);
  cm = microsecondsToCentimeters(duration);
 
  Serial.print(duration);
  Serial.print("time, ");
  Serial.print(inches);
  Serial.print("in, ");
  Serial.print(cm);
  Serial.print("cm");
  Serial.println();
 
  delay(100);
}

long microsecondsToInches(long microseconds)
{
  // According to Parallax's datasheet for the PING))), there are
  // 73.746 microseconds per inch (i.e. sound travels at 1130 feet per
  // second).  This gives the distance travelled by the ping, outbound
  // and return, so we divide by 2 to get the distance of the obstacle.
  // See: http://www.parallax.com/dl/docs/prod/acc/28015-PING-v1.3.pdf
  return microseconds / 74 / 2;
}

long microsecondsToCentimeters(long microseconds)
{
  // The speed of sound is 340 m/s or 29 microseconds per centimeter.
  // The ping travels out and back, so to find the distance of the
  // object we take half of the distance travelled.
 return microseconds / 29 / 2;
}

i'll hope this will work for you. You can find the wiring i used on the top of the code.
