Technology / Innovation

The Technologies

The theory behind the ultrasonic sensor is based on echo-location (like Sonars, used for navigation purposes). The frequency of the sound provides accuracy and remains inconspicuous. As sound hits a solid object, it is reflected back creating an echo. Since the speed of sound is known and constant for similar conditions, (such as wind or humidity to name a few), it is possible to determine the distance of the object emitting an echo by multiplying the speed of sound by half the time it takes to detect the echo (because the echo time is actually the time it takes the sound to hit an obstacle and travel back).
