Trig Trigger pin is used to trigger the ultrasonic sound pulses. Echo pin produces a pulse when the reflected signal is received. The length of the pulse is proportional to the time it took for the transmitted signal to be detected. GND should be connected to the ground of Arduino. In response to that the sensor transmits a sonic burst of eight pulses at 40 KHz. The eight ultrasonic pulses travel through the air away from the transmitter.

Next, I will explain you how the code works. No library required. I call them trigPin and EchoPin. The trigger pin is connected to digital pin 2 and the echo pin to digital pin 3 on the Arduino. The statement define is used to give a name to a constant value. The compiler will replace any references to this constant with the defined value when the the program is compiled.
So everywhere you mention trigPin, the compiler will replace it with the value 2 when the program is compiled. Duration stores the time between sending and receiving the sound waves. The distance variable is used to store the calculated distance. Next you initialize serial communication at a baud rate of Make sure the baud rate is also set to in the serial monitor. Note that to get a clean signal you start by clearing the trigPin by setting it LOW for 5 microseconds. I use the function pulseIn for this.
After that you calculate the distance by using the formula mentioned in the introduction of this tutorial. The latest version of this library can be downloaded here on bitbucket. You might notice that the code below, which uses the NewPing library, is a lot shorter than the code we used before.
Besides that, the NewPing library does include some other nice features. The library does include some examples that you can use, but you will have to modify them to match your hardware setup. I have included a modified example code below that can be used with the same wiring setup as before. More info: www. Maximum sensor distance is rated at cm. With this function you do not need to take a duration measurement and calculate the distance.
In the code, the only thing you have to change is line and define the same pin for both the trigPin and the echoPin. For example digital pin 2. This filter can greatly improve the accuracy of your HC-SR04 readings. By default it will take 5 readings but you can specify how many it should take. Replace line 19 with below lines. The HC-SR04 sensor is connected in the same way as before.
How HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Sensor Works & Interface It With Arduino
Map the objects surrounding the sensor by rotating it Measure the distance within a wide range of 2cm to cm Measure the depth of certain places like wells, pits etc, since the waves can penetrate through water Click to view and download HC-SR04 Datasheet HC-SR04 Pinout HC-SR04 ultrasonic sensor has in total 4 pins. However, you need to know functions of every pins before it can work better for you. This pin has to be kept high for 10us to initialize measurement by sending US wave. Pin 3, Echo, Echo pin is an Output pin. This pin goes high for a period of time which will be equal to the time taken for the US wave to return back to the sensor. Pin 4, Ground, This pin is connected to the Ground of the system.

How to use a HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Distance Sensor with Arduino
This sensor is a very popular sensor used in many applications where measuring distance or sensing objects are required. The module has two eyes like projects in the front which forms the Ultrasonic transmitter and Receiver. The circuitry inbuilt on the module will calculate the time taken for the US wave to come back and turns on the echo pin high for that same particular amount of time, this way we can also know the time taken. Now simply calculate the distance using a microcontroller or microprocessor. The following guide is universally since it has to be followed irrespective of the type of computational device used. The current consumed by the sensor is less than 15mA and hence can be directly powered by the on board 5V pins If available.
