HC-SR04

Hi there,

Im now looking into my college engineering project and am looking into making a car parking sensor.

Ive got all the basics, the only query i have is whether 2 or more HC-SR04 modules can be connected somehow so to increase the reliability in the distance measurements. 1 module i don't think will be sufficient.

many thanks

some thoughts:

  1. multiple readings and average them to minimize noise.

  2. calibrate the sensor used carefully to compensate systematic errors.

  3. optimize / tune the algorithm to be more exact.

  4. use different sensors as the same sensors would make probably the same mistakes/errors.

Increasing the number of sensors for car parking:

1- Can increase the coverage that you wanna detect obstacles in.

2- Can detect which side of the car has obstacles in according the reading of each sensor.

To minimize the error of the distance, you can get the average of multiple samples (i.e. taking the average of a burst of 5 signal readings called Debounce).

Hope you find it useful, :slight_smile:
