The ultrasonic distance sensor HC-SR04 can be found here. Non-contact measurement capabilities from 2 centimeters to 400 centimeters are provided by this inexpensive sensor, which has a ranging accuracy of up to 3 millimeters. An ultrasonic transmitter, a receiver, and a control circuit are included in each HC-SR04 module.
The HC-SR04 only has four pins that need to be taken care of: Echo (receive), Trig (trigger), GND (ground), and VCC (power). This sensor is very simple to set up and use for your next project involving range finding!
Depending on the application, this sensor’s additional control circuitry can prevent inconsistent “bouncy” data.
ultrasonic or level sensors use ultrasonic waves to measure distance, as the name suggests. The target’s reflection of an ultrasonic wave is received by the sensor head. Level and ultrasonic sensors measure the time between emission and reception to determine the target’s distance.

Outline and principle of detection While an optical sensor has both a transmitter and a receiver, an ultrasonic or level sensor uses a single ultrasonic element for both the emission and reception of sound. A single oscillator alternately emits and receives ultrasonic waves in a reflective model ultrasonic/level sensor. The sensor head can be made smaller as a result of this.
