ULTRASONIC THICKNESS

MEASUREMENT

OBJECTIVE:
The objective of this project is to Measure a
thickness of material using ultrasound sensor.

SCOPE:
Ultrasonic thickness measurement is a method
of performing non-destructive measurement of
the local thickness of a solid element basing on
the time taken by the ultrasound wave to return
from surface. Measurement is typically
performed with an ultrasonic thickness gauge.

BLOCK DIAGRAM:

WORKING PRINCIPLE:
The ultrasonic sensor sends a high-low pulse to the
controller. The pulse time will vary depending upon
the closeness between the sensor and the object.
Using this pulse timing the controller measures the
distance.
From this distance we can calculate the object
thickness. The set thinness will be given through
keypad, if thickness goes beyond the set value, alarm
turns on. LCD is used to Display the thickness of
object.

ADVANTAGES:

Low cost
Path finder
Easy to implement
Security
Less weight

APPLICATION:
This project is very useful for blind peoples.
