How do I need to connect up the Sensors?
Hi,Quote from: jamespeach on March 02, 2010, 02:21:17 AMHow do I need to connect up the Sensors?The PSD's has got an analog output, so you need some form of A/D-C.Depending on the precision you want, you could make a simple circuit (with eg. a 555) to convert the output of the PSD's to a pulse train where the frequency holds the info - might be easier for you to use this way, at least if you can access the hardwares timers.
I recommend you to check out http://www.trossenrobotics.com/sharp-ir-distance-sensor-gp2d12.aspx , there should be everything you need to interface the sensor with a PC without having to make any circuits by yourself.
