Reading a SHARP GP2D12/120 Infrared Ranger by BARRAGAN http://barraganstudio.com
Demonstrates how to connect and read values from a SHARP GP2D12 and GP2D120 family of infrared Ranger sensors. The ranger is connected to analog input pin 0. The value read from the sensor is proportional to the distance to an object or obstacle The value read is printed to the serial monitor
Serial.begin(9600); // sets the serial port to 9600
sensorValue = analogRead(0); // read analog input pin 0Serial.println(sensorValue, DEC); // prints the value readdelay(100); // wait 100ms for next reading
