The objective of this project is to calculate the distance from the sensor by using Arduino and to demonstrate an understanding of the Internet of Things. The Internet of Things is used to describe the overall network of connected devices as well as the technology that enables communication between devices and the cloud as well as within the devices themselves. In this project, Arduino, Ultrasonic Sensor, Node-Red, and Buzzer, are used to detect the distance from the sensor. The distance will be measured of the objects from the sensor and if the object is closer than the minimum distance bar the buzzer sound will activate and if the object is above the minimum distance bar the buzzer will deactivate. This project is useful in many ways, for example, we can use this in our car if any other vehicle is closer the buzzer will activate until it reaches the minimum distance by using this we can avoid accidents. The distance will be shown in centimeters in this project and the results will be shown in the Arduino.
