USB Ultrasonic Distance Sensors
USB Ultrasonic Distance Sensors – Measure Distance and Proximity
MaxBotix’s USB ultrasonic distance sensors are low-cost ultrasonic proximity sensors featuring an easy-to-use USB interface that
connects directly to a computer with a standard Micro-B USB cable. The interface was designed to be very easy and
intuitive to use.
These USB ultrasonic distance sensors provide a component module solution that offers easy integration with USB connectivity, ready-to-use, low power demands,
no sensor dead zone, calibrated beam patterns, stable range readings, and a host of other features. These USB
ultrasonic proximity sensors offer a controlled beam that is designed to reject small objects (clutter) outside of the central beam area
detecting frivolous or unwanted objects.
MaxBotix USB ultrasonic sensors such as the
HRUSB‑MaxSonar‑EZ and the
the USB‑ProxSonar‑EZ are also tested for proper operation at our facility and comes with a factory calibrated beam
pattern to help ensure consistent operation of the sensor even from part to part. They also detect objects in a
calibrated detection zone and report when an object (such as a person) enters the detection zone.

Use USB Ultrasonic Distance Sensors with the Raspberry Pi
For Raspberry Pi users, below we have an example project that show just how easy it is to use USB ultrasonic sensors. This USB ultrasonic sensor project combines easy-to-use USB ultrasonic sensors with the powerful Raspberry Pi.
MaxBotix USB ultrasonic sensors can easily be connected to the Raspberry Pi via the serial port or by USB. An USB ultrasonic sensor will give you valuable range data in your application that can be used for object detection, navigation, level detection, and a host of other possibilities.
Raspberry Pi Projects even easier. This tutorial teaches you how to connect a Raspberry Pi, as well as the other members of R Pi family, with an ultrasonic sensor to read data off the USB port.
