Help needed building a distance measuring device using an T-Display S3 amoled and ultrasonic sensors
I'm experienced with electronics but less with programming. My project is pretty simple for anyone who knows what he's doing (so not for me). I'd like to connect an ultrasonic sensor to the T-Display S3 and show the measured distance on the amoled screen.
I'f anyone would deign to advise me, that would be greatly appreciated. I'd even compensate you.
Just send me a message!
@djvandeflow Exactly what ultrasonic sensors board are you using?
Note: the T-Display S3 amoled and T-Display S3 are different boards!
@djvandeflow That is a very popular sensor, it should be easy to program.
Which T-Display do you have? "LilyGO T-Display S3" or "LilyGO T-Display S3 AMOLED"?
What is your project trying to do?
Are you experienced programming Arduino IDE ?
@teastain2 I've got the AMOLED version. I'm trying to build an overengineered measuring tape to determine the height of a person. Everything would be incorporated in a 3D printed mechanic's level thing to ensure the sensor is far enough away from the body and pointing at the floor.
I've never worked with Arduino IDE before, but with someone writing the code with/for me and telling me which libraries to install, I guess I'd get it done.

@djvandeflow Well, that is a big project!
These components are intended for hobbyists to develop their experiences with programming and build cool "experiments".
Most of these support sites are for-hobbyists, by-hobbyists and we're generally not interested in paid work but willing to give free advice, YES!
I can whip up a fast program to test my ultrasonic sensor outputting to a LilyGO T-Display S3 AMOLED and send you the sketch, if you want, but that's about all I can do from here!
@teastain2 OK, so I made this as a starter for you, but I cannot do the entire project!
Give me your email address and I will send you the program.
