Uncertainty in the measurement would be an issue, but to what degree I do
not know. I think this could at least be accurate enough to adequately
measure the length of a couch while shopping.
The Vernier device  is pretty accurate:
- ultrasound frequency: 50 kHz
- resolution: 1 mm
- accuracy: 2 mm
- range: MD-BTD - 0.15 m to 6 m
MDO-BTD - 0.5 m to 6 m
- speed of ultrasound used to calculate distance: 343 m/s
- power: 51 mA while running
