An ultrasonic sensor transmits ultrasonic waves into the air and detects reflected waves from an object. In this project you will be introduced to ultrasonic sensor and how to use it. And we’re going to build obstacle avoider robot using ultrasonic sensor which avoids obstacles or drives itself not running into a obstacle and finds itself a safer path.
