Introduction

Keep other people away with this handy wearable alarm! Using a distance sensor we're able to keep other people six feet away from us. As people approach you this project starts flashing at an increased rate followed by an annoying alarm. Create this project using a Crazy Circuits Robotics Board or Arduino of your choice.

    • We use a 1x2 LEGO Technic brick as a strain relief. It was a tight fit.

    • The Trigger Pin connect to D5, the Echo Pin connects to D6

  5. Use some additional LEGO bricks to secure the range finder in place.
    • Use some additional LEGO bricks to secure the range finder in place.

    • We also added some LEGO Technic bricks to the top of the project in order to attach a lanyard.

  6. Download or Copy the Arduino Code from our GitHub Repo.

    • As always, choose the appropriate port in the Arduino Software and choose Arduino Nano as the board being used.

    • You'll also need the NewTone_V1.0 Library to get this project working. That can also be found in our GitHub repo as a downloadable ZIP file.

    • Upload Code.
