Measuring around corners with ultrasonic sensors

Ultrasonic sensors always emit their sound waves “straight forwards” by nature. However, the spatial conditions and installation location make it difficult to directly align the sensor housing with the object being monitored in many applications. Redirecting the sound waves using suitable angled reflectors is a practical solution for this problem.
