RobotC: Using Multiple Ultrasonic (Sonar) Sensors

When using Multiple Ultrasonic (Sonar) Sensors together, you need to configure the Sensors to use ‘Single Shot Mode’, so only ONE Sensor is taking a measurement at any time. If you have all the Ultrasonic Sensors on at once they interfere with each other and give incorrect readings. To get around these issues, you need to take advantage of the LEGO Sonar Sensor’s Mode 1: Single Shot Mode.

Mindstorms NXT Soccer Playing Robot

This is the Mark I version of my LEGO Mindstorms Soccer Playing Robot.  The Robot relies on 3x Rotacaster omni-whheels in a Holonomic Platform configuration for movement. The three Rotacasters are driven by 3x NXT Motors connected to the NXT Brick.

Autonomous Rotacaster Omni-Bot

This Autonomous Quad Drive Omni-Bot fitted is with Rotacasters Omni-wheels and uses 4x Ultrasonic Sensors to aid in navigation. It’s based on my previous Quad-Drive Rotacaster Omni-Bot with the addition of the Ultrasonic Sensors. The main challenge is to use all 4 Ultrasonic Sensors without them interfering with each other, resulting in non-valid measurement readings for distance values to objects.
