picoBAT: ultrasonic bat detector

Posted on Thursday, January 27th, 2011 in code, PIC, sensors by the machinegeek

Think you have bats in the belfry? If you have a PIC 12F683, ultrasonic piezo receiver and piezo speaker, micro-examples has a project that purports to detect the presence of bats and sound a piezo alarm. The schematic and C source are available for download.

We can envision a modification which would transmit an alert wirelessly for remote bat detection in areas such as an attic.
