Arduino Based Water Level Indicator and Controller System110 Pyay University Research Journal2016, Vol.8, No.1Arduino based water level indicator and controller system is used to measure the water level by using ultrasonic sensor. This system indicates whether the water level in the tank is Full or Low, which is displayed on LCD screen. When the water level in the tank becomes low, the water motor pump is automatically turned on and the speaker also will ring. When the water level in the tank becomes full, the water motor pump is automatically turned off.
