# Nerves_Hcsr04

A library to interface with the HC-SR04 ultrasonic distance sensor.

:warning: Linux based systems are not fast enough to keep up with the short modulation frequency of a GPIO based interfaces like the HC-SR04.

If you need more accurate measurements, especially over a longer period of time, you should look for an I2C based distance sensor.


## Wiring
The HC-SR04 sensors has 4 pins. VCC and GND are a given.

ECHO is a input pin receiving the signal modulation when the measurement is completed.
TRIG is a output pin triggering the measurement process.

## Installation

The package can be installed by adding `nerves_hcsr04` to your list of dependencies in `mix.exs`:

def deps do
    {:nerves_hcsr04, "~> 0.1.0"}

## Usage

{:ok, pid} = Hcsr04.start_link([trigger: 18, echo: 24])
distance_in_mm =
