Hi, im from the netherlands. And looking for somebody how can make a sonar measuring tape for me. For in the rang of 500 +- us dollars. The reason im not doing this my self, because i dont have an knowledge with arduino and electronics. Maybe its and nice project for somebody on the side, if so please let me know.
Here i will explain what i think is needed to build. something similiar to these products. https://finkyfactor.wordpress.com/2011/07/15/diy-cinetape/ http://store.redrockmicro.com/microTape.html http://www.cinemaelec.com/products/cinetapemeasure.php
but then only much smaller, and is need a wireless readout of the distance.
things that are important for me:
-small form factor. - needs to be powerd by 12v
i can but the system itself in to a small cage. for daily use. i you have any questions please contact me! thanks!
