Hi, i need an Ir sensor to avoid obstacle, there are a lot of sharp ir sensors, what is the most popular so that i can found a lot of tutorials and sketch?

i watched there http://www.robot-italy.com/index.php?cPath=15_47&sort=3a&page=2

and there http://www.regaliedesideri.it/hobby-equip/electronics/components/sensors/sharp-ir-rangesensor.html

please help me  :)



I got this one from Solar Botics /HVW tech

It worked first time...

I am sure you can find a local supplier.


Did some fiddling with the SHARP 2Y0A02 F 9Y , 20 - 150 cm See article on platyground how to handle - http://arduino.cc/playground/Main/MultiMap

hope this helps

You may also want a sonic ranger for a second way. IR won't work too well under natural sun light and different things reflect IR differently. If you also have a sonic ranger, you will very less likely miss an obstacle when both sensors fail to detect. I use sonic rangers to help me back my car :) It's posted on the exhibition board.
