Choices in Ultrasonic Rangfinders
March 21, 2012
I am looking at ordering an ultrasonic sensor for use on robot #2. I will order it from Solarbotics, since I was pleased with their previous service and they have some other stuff I can combine it with in the order.
There is some really good information on LMR about the SRF05 so I am inclined to go with that since its well documented here.
At the same time, they have some interesting choices like the MaxSonar-EZ0 and MaxSonar-EZ1 along with the SRF02.
I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations (or warnings) in regards to these various ultrasonic range finders?
I will certainly be using it with a PICAXE 28X1 on their very pleasant development board. Robot #2 will be an indoor bot attempting to roam around without bumping into anything too hard.
Thanks for any suggestions,
