Has anyone ever used the IR distance sensor Sharp 2Y0A700? It's their biggest sensor, that detects up to a 5.5 m range. I need to use it in an installation with a deadline coming up soon and have two problems with it:
1 _Chaotic readings and I saw that using a capacitor might help. I will try that later today. Where exactly do I need to connect it? Since my Sharp has 2 ground/V ins, means I need 2 capacitors then, non?
2 _Looking for a formula to linearize the readings for that specific sensor. There's an explanation on the Acroname website, but my math skills are totally inappropriate to understand or even reproduce that....
Most grateful for any good advice! Cheers
