I am trying to sense proximity & relative position between two objects. I am mainly interested in close proximity (maximum proximity of interest is 5cm/2inches). I have built prototypes using magnetic switches and digital hall sensors and am quite satisfied so far.
I would like to have an analog input signal, so I can gather a bit more information on orientation etc. (using multiple sensors). Does anyone have a recommendation on a sensor I could use?
Due to the form factor, this sensor needs to be as small as possible.
Sensors I found through a google search that I would consider are these here:http://www2.produktinfo.conrad.com/datenblaetter/175000-199999/182839-da-01-en-Magnetfeldsensor_KMZ_10B_B.pdfhttp://www.allegromicro.com/en/products/part_numbers/1301/index.asp
If anyone has any tipps for me, I would be grateful
