[PATCH 0/2] iio: distance: devantech srf04 us ranger

From: Andreas Klinger
Date: Sat Jan 28 2017 - 18:59:10 EST

This patch series adds support for the devantech srf04 ultrasonic ranger as
IIO device.

The device is able to recognize objects in a range of 1 cm and 3 meters.
The theoretical resolution is about 3 mm, practically more or less 1 cm.

Use cases for this device are level metering in tanks or distance measuring
in robotics.

This driver works by triggering the device and waiting for the echo, for
which a GPIO is set when send out and reset when the echo is received.
The echo must be an interrupt and the time between rising and falling is

The returned distance is calculated with a ultrasonic speed of 343 m/s
which is the correct value at 20 degrees celsius.
For different temperatures one might want to compensate the temperature.
Look at the source code for details.
