  • Measures distances from 2cm to 400cm with ultrasound
  • Output in 1mm steps (12bit resolution)


The Distance US Bricklet is discontinued. For now you can use one of the Distance IR Bricklets or the Laser Range Finder Bricklet as replacement. A Distance US Bricklet 2.0 is planned but not ready yet.

The Distance US Bricklet is equipped with an ultrasonic distance sensor and extends Bricks by the possibility to measure distances from 2cm to 400cm. The measured distance is reported as unitless value, not in mm. This is because the relation between the distance value and the actual distance depends on the exact value of the 5V supply voltage. Deviations in the supply voltage result in deviations in the measured distance values. With configurable events it is possible to react on changing distances without polling. Typical applications can be found in robotics, usage as light barrier alternative and so on.
