Temperature Compensation on Ultrasonic Sensors

Posted by Eric Miller on Fri, Dec 01, 2017

The speed of sound depends on ambient temperature. As temperature rises, the speed of sound increases. As it gets colder, the speed of sound decreases. For ultrasonic sensors, this variance can affect accuracy, since a faster or slower echo return will make a stationary target appear closer or farther away.
