    Week 3 – Stupid Pet Trick -> Proximity Gauge


    2009 - 09.29

    My Stupid Pet Trick project is a proximity gauge.  I am using a range finder sensor to detect how close an object is to the sensor.  The proximity gauge will turn on a different LED’s depending how close the object is.  A green LED will turn on when an object is more than 1 ft. away.  A yellow LED will turn on when an object is within 6 inches away.  A red LED will turn on when an object is within 3 inches away.  When an object is an inch away the red LED will blink rapidly.   I then added sound to the proximity gauge.  A tone is emitted and changes pitch depending how close an object is.  The higher the pitch is the farther an object is from the proximity gauge.
