Ping Sensor-BoE

Hello, I'm working on making the servo motor move with every ping that it hits.
I will be using 3 different ping sensors, I also want them to ping at about 12 cm out, but when i plug in the second one it goes below 2 cm and it stays in theloop and never stops . I need to know a way to get all 3 pings to work, not just 1.
Can you help me?

  • How quickly are you firing each sensor? To avoid other sensors from hearing someone else's chirp and giving erroneous data, you should allow for at least 20+ milliseconds before firing another sensor. You want to make sure there is only one ultrasonic burst flying around and only the sending sensor is listening for it. If you fire the second sensor too soon it will probably pick up the first sensors chirp and falsely report an echo from something closer than it really is.

  • Here is my program just for 2 ping sensors. I would like it to work, as when i pass in front of it while less than 12cm it will turn to that specific ping
  • Here is what it looks like connected to the board

  • Where is the code for the second Ping? Looking at your pictures I see a second, unterminated cable lying next to an unconnected Ping. The other end terminates on the project board paralleling the first Ping's cable. If you are using two Pings, each one must be connected to a separate I/O pin on the Stamp. And the second Ping must have programming to operate it separately from the other Ping.

  • Okay, so you are saying that I need to change my wiring and make a code for the second ping. How do i separate the first ping from the second ping in my code?
  • Connect your 2nd Ping to P13 (Just the blue wire in the first picture).
