Schematics

Buzzer Sensor Diagram

A schematic representation of all connections involving Buzzer Sensor.

Ultrasonic Sensor Diagram

A schematic representation of all connections involving Ultrasonic Sensor.

Button Component Diagram

Graphical Data from Demonstration (Color Wavelegth)

This is the data that was collected during the demonstration, found with this link: https://youtu.be/UM3qpXbeqaQ

Notice:
Color green wavelength = 550nm
Color orange wavelength = 600nm
Color red wavelength = 700nm

Graphical Data from Demonstration (Distance)

Data explained: once the demonstration starts, there is a 5 second delay before any changes in distance is made. This change is constant until achieving a distance less than 50cm, which is the end of the demonstration.

All Assembled Components Without Vehicle

Representation of wired connections. This does not show how/where components are placed outside/inside the vehicle used in the demonstration.

Demonstration (Beginning)

Vehicle is farther than 100cm from wall.

Demonstration (Middle)

Vehicle is between 50 - 100cm from the wall.

Demonstration(End)

Vehicle is less than 50cm from the wall. Red LED indicates driver to stop vehicle to prevent crashing.
