in retrospect, it would have helped if you had posted a good link to info on the US-100 sensor,
especially where to find the datasheet. All I've found so far are amazon and ebay ads for it,
which indicates it's yet another chinese knockoff, seling for about 1/4 the price of standard
Pretty soon, we'll be able to buy EVERYTHING from china at huge discounts, and they'll own
all in sight :-).
Good point. I am actually testing with that and also trying the Ping. I hear you on the China thing. I am trying to find an alternative to my iPhone that is made in the US but it seems like every one is made in China, specifically Foxconn. I just feel guilty knowing the conditions and pay those people endure. If anyone knows good sensors manufactured here I would be happy to pay the extra money;)
Here is the guide for the ping-http://www.parallax.com/Portals/0/Downloads/docs/prod/acc/28015-PING-v1.6.pdf
More than anything I was referencing this type of sensor. Also, if anyone knows of any cheap laser sensors that would be great. 2D is fine as this will be a single static point being measured;)
