In this Arduino Tutorial I will show you how you can make this cool looking radar using the Arduino Board and the Processing Development Environment. You can watch the following video or read the written tutorial below for more details.

You may use Fusion PCB service (https://www.seeedstudio.com/fusion.html) to make it better.

How I Designed This

Building the device

First I made a cardboard stand for connecting the Ultrasonic sensor to the Servo motor. I folded it like it’s shown on the picture below, glued it and secured to the servo motor using a screw like this.

Also I attached a pin header on which I soldered 4 jumper wires for connecting the sensor.

Finally I secured the servo motor to the Arduino Board using an elastic band.

Circuit Schematics

I connected the Ultrasonic Sensor HC-SR04 to the pins number 10 and 11 and the servo motor to the pin number 12 on the Arduino Board.

Source codes

Now we need to make a code and upload it to the Arduino Board that will enable the interaction between the Arduino and the Processing IDE.

This isn't radar but sonar, right?

yes you are right.it's a sonar but looks like a radar:) Accuratly it's a sonar.But sonar works under the water. Thus call it whatever you like is ok~
