The Distance IR Bricklet can be used to extend the features of Bricks by the capability to measure distances. Sharp analog infrared proximity sensors can be attached to the Bricklet. After configuring the attached sensor you can read out the measured distance in millimeters. With configurable events it is possible to react on changing distances without polling.

Infrared sensors with different distance ranges are available in the shop:

Typically these types of sensors are used in robotics to measure distances for mapping or localization purposes. But you can also use this sensors in other applications, such as a finding out if a door is opened or closed.
