Information obtained by the ultrasonic sensor is influenced by the characteristics of the sensing system such as sensitivity, directivity and so on. In order to investigate its influence, we constructed two ultrasonic ranging systems of which characteristics differ from each other and examined their performance such as obstacle detectability and resultant sonar map.
