  • Skyped with Jerry for more details on the ultrasonic sensor
  • Learned that the Teensy runs at a 96 MHz clock speed, allowing for a measurement of smaller amounts of time (crucial for the ultrasonic to work)
  • Jerry gave us an in-depth explanation of how the ultrasonic sensor works
  • Also learned that the ultrasonic receiver only receives the sound signal (inaudible) only in the 40 MHz spectrum, meaning that external noise such as car horns was not an issue
  • Words of wisdom from Jerry: don't focus on being stuck on a problem, just move on to another problem
