Ultrasonic Sensors

Recommended Posts

I wanted to add precise altitude control on my home built UAV so after doing some research I just ordered one of these Ultra Sonic sensors.

I ordered the power filter too

They are compatible with both the APM and Pixhawk flight controllers and there seems to be adequate documentation to connect and configure it.

This is a more economical solution than Lidar range sensing although that's something that I would like to experiment with at a later time.
