I was wondering if it was possible to use the sensor from a mouse as a crude motion/proximity sensor to tell when the robot is close to, but not touching an object?(sensor I'm thinking of using pictured below)edit: better picture added
If this is possible, great But...
that brings up another problem.
It's a PAN3512DK-TJZA
. I've tried looking for information on this chip, found out from the only site mentioning it
that the manufacturer is PixArt Imaging
, but the PixArt website no longer lists anything about it.
Its a 12 pinned chip, but have no clue of the pin layout.
Any feedback (help/suggestions/flames) is greatly appreciated.If it cannot be used/isn't possible, that's 100% ok, just trying to find out info before starting with it.
