I'm a newbie. I've just begun working on a project where I need to measure a distance. I'm planning on using a Sharp GP2Y3A001K0F (Distance Measuring Sensor Unit). I need to be able to convert the voltage output from the Sharp device to a digital signal that the uC can use to calculate a distance value. Next, I wish to control some LEDs that tell whether or not the measurement is in a particular range (e.g. - green = in-range).
1) Are there any examples out there that would expedite my efforts? Incidentally, I need to accomplish a proof of concept by next week (7/20).
2) If there are no examples, are there tutorials that will get me there?
