Topic: Alternative to Parallax Ping Range Sensor? (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


I have an RC Dalek that i've torn apart.  I've already gotten control of the motors with an Arduino and motor driver.  I'd like to add some sort of wall/object sensor.

I've found the Parallax Ping sensor.  It looks like it would work, but its sorta large and odd shaped.  Are there any other ultrasonic sensors that are a little smaller?  Or is there a better alternative to ultrasonic sensors? 

Basically, I would just want it to detect an object in its path, stop, turn and continue.
