The example demonstrates how to use an ultrasonic sensor with Quarky.


Now we will connect the Ultrasonic Sensor to the Robot. The sensor and the robot have the following pins:

We will start with connecting the ultrasonic sensor with Quarky using the 4 set wire provided in the kit. But, first, make the connection in the following way:

  • First, connect the VCC of the ultrasonic sensor with the V pin on the Quarky.
  • Connect the GND of the ultrasonic sensor with the Ground pin on the Quarky.
  • Connect Trig of the ultrasonic sensor with D1 pin on the Quarky.
  • Finally, connect the Echo of the ultrasonic sensor with the D2 pin on the Quarky.
