EV3 basics course. Ultrasonic Sensor. Detect object (part1)

We are introducing the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Ultrasonic Sensor. The first program is actually to detect an object and stop near it, at about 4 inches/10 centimeters. The ultrasonic sensor could be used during robotics competitions, but most of its use is for experiments.

The Ultrasonic Sensor was quite popular in the NXT version of the robot and is still used in the EV3 robotics sets. The sensor detects distance to objects with a minimum range of about 1 centimeter/0.4 inches to about 255 centimeter/100 inches.
