Ultrasonic Motion Tracker

I thought it'd be cool to have a device that tracks when you're moving while recording on a phone for a hands-free following...

Unfortunately the specs for the Ultrasonic sensors aren't correct lol. They're supposed to be able to detect up to 4 meters, but as you may have seen in Fernando's video, they require some up close movement.

Even if the project doesn't work completely as intended, this is the first project to use an Ultrasonic sensor so I hope it gives you some experience with using them. Additionally, combined with parts from previous projects you may not have built, there is a collision detection car that could be made with these parts. (Link below)

UFO Includes:

  • 2 x Ultrasonic Sensors
  • Arduino Nano + Power Cord
  • 9v battery clip (a 9v battery works better for the stepper motor)
  • Stepper Motor
  • Stepper Driver Board

I apologize for you having to provide your own wires this month.

Check out Fernando and please thank him for taking on UFO project development for me!
