The Sharp GP2D12 is an analog distance sensor that uses infrared to detect an object between 10 cm data obtained from Sharp’s GP2D12 datasheet.

Sharp GP2D12 and 2Y0A02 infrared rangers output a voltage proportionate to the distance of an object from the sensor. We powered the sensors with a 5volt supply, as shown in the schematic above.

We connected the output directly to a multimeter set to measure voltage. This graph shows the relationship between the output voltage of the GP2D12 and the distance of objects from the sensor datasheet page 3, figure 6.

The output is unreliable for extremely close objects, seen as the small hump between 5 and 10cm. For an exhaustive discussion of the various Sharp proximity sensors, check out the Sharp IR ranger information page at Arconame.

K, so these things are great, but for those who want something digital, might I recomend these guys: They basically took the same sharp sensor and added their own really small pic microcontroller, and gave the things I2C out, or if you search around on their site they also have serial ones.

Cool stuff, handy for more complicated projects. Sorry wrong link- that one has a range finder on it, but its not dedicated. Try this one instead its cheaper:.

It looked much better before being youtubeized. I used three of these little sharp gp2d112 for my masters project, a light weight height sensor for helicopter UAVs. They are slightly tricky to use though since the output voltage isnt linear.

Have a look if you like:. I used these sensors for a microprocessor project. I attached them to the head of a roboquad and then used them I fried the original IR sensor since I didnt know gpp2d12 it was.

I have used these sensors for a project of mine but found their accuracy even after calibration to be a bit off. The output even with the capacitor was very noisy. Does anybody know of another preferable cheap sensor that can do the same job but be more accurate at distances from cm? I was thinking of replacing the transmit LED with a laser — I need to sense the distance of a small object at a distance, and a more-precise spot might be helpful.
