the sensor outputs a single response. object is there or its not. the sharp IR sensor says how far away the object is.
But why do you want to use the TSOP sensor?
Hi,If you wanna use a TSOPxxxx, you need more hardware. You need an IR-LED of the wavelength of the TSOP and you need an oscillator to modulate it at the carrier frequency the TSOPxxxx needs.Further, not all TSOPxxxx's will do, as many have a noise cancelling scheme that makes the AGC turn the gain of the TSOPxxxx all the way down when it sees a continuous signal and as such won't work - you need to get one of the types used for IR curtains.Alternatively, your oscillator could be made more complicated, to make burst patterns and irregular breaks to fool the noise cancelling circuitry.Given the cost of extra hardware and the time you need to get it working, perhaps a Sharp sensor is worth the higher cost after all?
mind putting up some schematics for that? sounds useful.
