`Sharp distance sensor GP2y0d805z0f

I an trying to find a code for this sensor as it senses motion to turn on LED for a delay of 5-6 seconds.
The sensor seems to have a slow response as I need it to be almost instantaneous to turn on the LED.
I will be using multiple sensors with there own LED. Can this be done?
I am using Arduino Mega 2560.
Here is what I tried...

int led = 42; // the pin that the LED is atteched to
int sensor = 52; // the pin that the sensor is atteched to
int state = HIGH; // by default, no motion detected
int val = 1; // variable to store the sensor status (value)

void setup() {
pinMode(led, OUTPUT); // initalize LED as an output
pinMode(sensor, INPUT); // initialize sensor as an input
Serial.begin(9600); // initialize serial
}

void loop(){
val = digitalRead(sensor); // read sensor value
if (val == HIGH) { // check if the sensor is HIGH
digitalWrite(led, HIGH); // turn LED OFF
delay(100); // turn LED OFF

if (state == LOW) {
Serial.println("Motion detected!");
state = LOW; // update variable state to LOW
}
}
else {
digitalWrite(led, LOW); // turn LED On
delay(7000);

if (state == HIGH){
Serial.println("Motion stopped!");
state = HIGH; // update variable state to HIGH
}
}

Thanks for any help on this!

First: To post code you must use code tags around it. In the editor it’s the </> to produce them.

I don’t know the sensor but definitely a source of the slow response are the delay() calls in your code. Remove them, they are not needed.

Update the comments, some of them are simply wrong.

Sharp distance sensor GP2y0d805z0f is quite an awesome sensor. I have used it in many of my projects and it works really great.

I think the problem you are getting is because of 7 seconds delay. Obviously when your LED is ON then your code will stuck for 7 seconds in the delay and that will make the sensor slow. So, I would suggest you to find some other way of making LED glow for 7 seconds.

I know I'm late , but thank you for your input.
