OzUltraSonicSensor

This protocol controls any ultrasonic sensor connected to the microcontroller. The trigger and echo pins can be provided in the .ino file as you can see in the Arduino codes below.

How to build a test circuit with an ultrasonic sensor and an Arduino Mega?
Arduino codes are included.

I. 'Welcome' event from microcontroller

Example

c=welcome&id=knRJ67&type=OzUltraSonicSensor&pos=2&name=MyUltra_1&t=3

Parameters

Parameter Type Range Functionality
c String 'welcome' Identifies the welcome message.
id String 6 characters (numbers, uppercase and lowercase characters) The ID of the device which is chosen by the microcontroller.
type String 'OzUltraSonicSensor' Determines the type of the device.
pos Byte 0-255 Determines the position of the device on the list of the ID manager of the microcontroller. Please make sure there are no other devices in the same position.
name (optional) String e.g. 'MyUltra_1' You can give default names for devices.
t Byte 0-255 Counts the number of events and responses sent combined. Counts from 0 to 255 then from 0 again.



II. Commands to microcontroller

'getvalue' command

With this command you can get the current distance of the measured object from your sensor. The value is provided in mm.

Example

c=getvalue&id=knRJ67&t=0

Parameters

Parameter Type Range Functionality
c String 'getvalue' Identifies the command.
id String 6 characters (numbers, uppercase and lowercase characters) The ID of the device which is chosen by the microcontroller.
t Byte 0-255 Counts the number of commands sent. Counts from 0 to 255 then from 0 again.

Response

Responds the current distance in mm between the object and the ultrasonic sensor.

Example

c=getvalue_resp&value=62.23&id=knRJ67&t=3
Parameter Type Range Functionality
c String 'getvalue_resp' Identifies the response
value Double Measurement range of your sensor in mm. Shows the distance from the measured object.
id String 6 characters (numbers, uppercase and lowercase characters) The ID of the device which is chosen by the microcontroller.
t Byte 0-255 Counts the number of events and responses sent combined. Counts from 0 to 255 then from 0 again.



'repchange' command

Sets threshold compared to the last measured distance. A 'change' event is sent everytime it passes the threshold in one of the directions. If it is set to 0 it is turned off.

Example

c=repchange&value=5.00&id=knRJ67&t=1

Parameters

Parameter Type Range Functionality
c String 'repchange' Identifies the command.
value Double From 0.00 to the range of your ultrasonic sensor. Sets measurement threshold value compared to the last measured value. If it is set to 0 than the 'change' event is turned off.
id String 6 characters (numbers, uppercase and lowercase characters) The ID of the device which is chosen by the microcontroller.
t Byte 0-255 Counts the number of commands sent. Counts from 0 to 255 then from 0 again.

Response

Responds if the threshold value has been set.

Example

c=repchange_resp&value=5.00&id=knRJ67&t=4

Parameters

Parameter Type Range Functionality
c String 'repchange_resp' Identifies the response.
value Double From 0.00 to the range of your ultrasonic sensor. The measurement threshold value to trigger a 'change' event has been set. If it is set to 0 than the 'change' event is turned off.
id String 6 characters (numbers, uppercase and lowercase characters) The ID of the device which is chosen by the microcontroller.
t Byte 0-255 Counts the number of events and responses sent combined. Counts from 0 to 255 then from 0 again.



'repabove' command

Triggers an 'above' event everytime the distance passes the value you set with this command.

Example

c=repabove&value=655.00&id=knRJ67&t=2

Parameters

Parameter Type Range Functionality
c String 'repabove' Identifies the command.
value Double From 0.00 to the range of your ultrasonic sensor. If the measured value of the pin crosses this value than an 'above' event is triggered.
id String 6 characters (numbers, uppercase and lowercase characters) The ID of the device which is chosen by the microcontroller.
t Byte 0-255 Counts the number of commands sent. Counts from 0 to 255 then from 0 again.

Response

Responds if the above value has been set.

Example

c=repabove_resp&value=655.00&id=knRJ67&t=5

Parameters

Parameter Type Range Functionality
c String 'repabove_resp' Identifies the response.
value Double From 0.00 to the range of your ultrasonic sensor. If the measured value of the pin crosses this value than an 'above' event is triggered.
id String 6 characters (numbers, uppercase and lowercase characters) The ID of the device which is chosen by the microcontroller.
t Byte 0-255 Counts the number of events and responses sent combined. Counts from 0 to 255 then from 0 again.



'repbelow' command

Triggers a 'below' event everytime the measurement value passes the value you set with this command.

Example

c=repbelow&value=133.00&id=knRJ67&t=3

Parameters

Parameter Type Range Functionality
c String 'repbelow' Identifies the command.
value Double From 0.00 to the range of your ultrasonic sensor. If the measured value of the pin crosses this value than a 'below' event is triggered.
id String 6 characters (numbers, uppercase and lowercase characters) The ID of the device which is chosen by the microcontroller.
t Byte 0-255 Counts the number of commands sent. Counts from 0 to 255 then from 0 again.

Response

Responds if the below value has been set.

Example

c=repbelow_resp&value=133.00&id=knRJ67&t=6

Parameters

Parameter Type Range Functionality
c String 'repbelow_resp' Identifies the response.
value Double From 0.00 to the range of your ultrasonic sensor. If the measured value of the pin crosses this value than a 'below' event is triggered.

t Byte 0-255 Counts the number of events and responses sent combined. Counts from 0 to 255 then from 0 again.



III. Event from microcontroller

'change' event

This event is called if the measured value has changed more then the threshold set with the 'repchange' command. This event shows the current distance measured with the OzUltraSonicSensor.

c=change&value=112.00&id=knRJ67&t=7

Parameters

Parameter Type Range Functionality
c String 'change' Identifies the event.
value Double Measurement range of your sensor in mm. Current value of the measured distance. It is the value measured after it has passed the threshold.
id String 6 characters (numbers, uppercase and lowercase characters) The ID of the device which is chosen by the microcontroller.
t Byte 0-255 Counts the number of events and responses sent combined. Counts from 0 to 255 then from 0 again.


'above' event

This event is called if the measured value has crossed above a preset value which you can set with the 'repabove' command.

Example

c=above&value=655.00&id=knRJ67&t=8

Parameters

Parameter Type Range Functionality
c String 'above' Identifies the event.
value Double Measurement range of your sensor in mm. Current value of the measured distance. It is the value measured after it has crossed the 'above' value that has been set.
id String 6 characters (numbers, uppercase and lowercase characters) The ID of the device which is chosen by the microcontroller.
t Byte 0-255 Counts the number of events and responses sent combined. Counts from 0 to 255 then from 0 again.


'below' event

This event is called if the measured value has crossed below a preset value which you can set with the 'repbelow' command.

Example

c=below&value=133.00&id=knRJ67&t=9

Parameters

Parameter Type Range Functionality
c String 'below' Identifies the event.
value Double Measurement range of your sensor in mm. Current value of the measured distance. It is the value measured after it has crossed the 'below' value that has been set.
