This project scans a 180 degree area from about 6 to 21 inches (15cm to 53cm) away and displays the information on a color LCD. To do this is uses. An infrared distance sensor from Sharp and an ultrasonic sensor from MaxBotix. This project is a short range, infrared and ultrasonic scanner that uses a standard hobby servo to move the sensors and a color LCD screen to display the information from the sensors. The information displayed on the LCD is an overhead view of the scanning area, with increments of distance from the sensors.
