Eddy,

I'll be buying 4 of them pretty soon. I'll probably have to use the pwm output.

Yeah, these sensors look really good. The only downfall is that they can't tell you exactly how far away something is until 6 inches. But, my application doesn't need that so I'm ok.

Thank you. That one looks really good. I especially like how small it looks.

I think a good article (or small blurb) to put in Servo would be to list all the "top Robotics Universities". Especially with the FIRST competitions, there are a lot of students out there looking to emphasize in robotics in college. Dick, that's good advice. I'm thinking about entering graduate scho...

Sonar Distance Sensor

Last Spring I saw an ad in either Servo or Nuts and Volts for a sonar distance sensor. It could measure up 15 feet (approximately) and costs around $25 or $30. It wasn't the Ping, SRF04 or SRF08. Does anyone remember what it was? I've looked through all my old issues and can't seem to find the ad. I...

What do you think of this camera? It says it has a serial interface and is 460800 baud. I could stream that over the WiPort pretty easily couldn't I?

WiPort / XPort

Has anyone ever used the XPort or WiPort from Lantronix? There was mention of the WiPort in the last issue of Servo. I have a WiPort development board and I was thinking about trying to stream video over the internet with it. Do you think it's possible? I assume I would need some sort of interface c...
