And now for something different comes this small rangefinder from Scitech WA. It's a neat project that rotates an ultrasonic distance sensor across a 180-degree sweep, and displays the result on a small colour OLED display.
This has many uses, from simply being a lot of fun to experiment with it also gives you the framework for a more advance object-detection system for an autonomous robot or artificial-intelligence project.
Need an OLED for your Arduino or Raspberry Pi projects? Check out our 128x128 pixel OLED Module. With a diagonal size of 1.5" and 16,384 colours to select from, so almost anything is possible. Furthermore there's a microSD card socket, and removable tabs on each side which can hold LEDs and buttons:
And using the module is made simple - we have tutorials, drivers for both the Arduino and Raspberry Pi platforms - and adaptor shields for Arduino, LeoStick and Raspberry Pi - great for experimenters or those who use both systems. Furthermore, check out the forum where members are already creating modified drivers to rapidly increase the display speed. For more information including our Quickstart guides - and of course to order - visit the OLED Module product page.
