It's 4AM: Arduino SHR Coded but not built
October 3, 2010
Today I got the Sharp analog distance sensor (GP2Y0A21YK) from SparkFun, and all the parts that Ro-Bot-X recommended for his board. I figured out how to use the Sharp sensor, which was dead easy. Then I translated fritsl's start here code to the Arduino. Since I'm very new to the Arduino, this was a good learning experience. It really wasn't hard at all.
The Sharp sensor and some indicator LEDs are all set. I still have the body from my original SHR, so that's good to go. Right now the Arduino Mega (overkill, I know) and the servo and Sharp sensor are connected and working (a mess, I know).
Now I'm just waiting for the robot building board so I can connect everything and test it out. Can't wait!
