Topic: connecting a lazer distance measuring tool to a linear actuator,  (Read 98 times) previous topic - next topic

My goal is to connect a lazer range finder through arduino to a linear actuator, and pre set distance to travel positions. IE if the lazer reads 10 feet away from target, actuator goes to position preset for that distance. Presets will only be at 1 foot increments, nothing more precise is necessarry for this project at this time. The question is, can it be done ? and if so , how? analog to digital conversion maybe? its the million dollar question. any  ideas???

AWOL

What are the specs of the laser rangefinder?
Is the laser rangefinder capable of being interfaced to an Arduino?
