The aim of the project is to design “Stride Time Estimation Real Time Peak Detection Implemented On an 8 Bit Micro Controller”.


Micro Controller (8051), Ultrasonic Sensor, A/D Converter, 16X2 LCD.


Real time peak detection can be implemented by using ultrasonic sensor. Ultrasonic Sensors also known as Transceiver which is work on a principle similar to radar.

Ultrasonic sensors generate high frequency sound waves and evaluate the echo which is received back by the sensor. Sensors calculate the time interval between sending the signal and receiving the echo to determine the distance to an object.

Ultrasonic sensors can be used for measuring height of the objects like buildings, vehicles etc. To measure the height of the object, the sensor measures the distance to the surface of the object.

Our Embedded project is to design and develop a low cost feature which is based on embedded platform for finding the height of the objects by using ultrasonic sensor.

Our embedded project uses ultrasonic sensor which is connected to micro controller through A/D converter. The controller process the information and given to LCD unit. The results can be monitored on 16X2 LCD.

Here we are using 8051 micro Controller to implement this project.
