MaxBotix’s USB ultrasonic distance sensors are low-cost ultrasonic proximity sensors featuring an easy-to-use USB interface that connects directly to a computer with a standard Micro-B USB cable. The interface was designed to be very easy and intuitive to use. These USB ultrasonic distance sensors provide a component module solution that offers easy integration with USB connectivity, ready-to-use, low power demands, no sensor dead zone, calibrated beam patterns, stable range readings, and a host of other features.
These USB ultrasonic proximity sensors offer a controlled beam that is designed to reject small objects (clutter) outside of the central beam area detecting frivolous or unwanted objects. MaxBotix USB ultrasonic sensors such as the HRUSB‑MaxSonar‑EZ and the USB‑ProxSonar‑EZ are also tested for proper operation at our facility and comes with a factory calibrated beam pattern to help ensure consistent operation of the sensor even from part to part.

Use USB Ultrasonic Distance Sensors with the Raspberry Pi
For Raspberry Pi users, below we have an example project that shows just how easy it is to use USB ultrasonic sensors. This USB ultrasonic sensor project combines easy-to-use USB ultrasonic sensors with the powerful Raspberry Pi.
MaxBotix USB ultrasonic sensors can easily be connected to the Raspberry Pi via the serial port or by USB. A USB ultrasonic sensor will give you valuable range data in your application that can be used for object detection, navigation, level detection, and a host of other possibilities.
MaxBotix USB ultrasonic sensors make your Raspberry Pi Projects even easier. This tutorial teaches you how to connect a Raspberry Pi Zero, as well as the other members of R Pi family, with an ultrasonic sensor to read data off the USB port.
The Raspberry Pi family of products opens the world of coding up to all ages with their easy interface and budget friendly pricing.
