IR proximity motor control

Posted on Friday, January 4th, 2013 in infrared, PIC, sensors by the machinegeek


Chris from PyroElectro writes informing us of his project to achieve Motor Control via Proximity Sensing. He describes, “In this article, we go step-by-step through the process of understanding, designing and building a system that uses an infrared proximity sensor for input, correlates that input to how far away an object is from the sensor and then drives a motor and some LEDs at distinct speeds depending upon the proximity of the object.”

Get the details, schematic and code at PyroElectro.
