  1. All,
    I have been working on an ultrasonic sensor since 1994.
    (I posted this because this really is a break through product
    and I would have wanted one in 1997.)
    About two years ago I decided to package the sensor for everyone.
    It is avaible now. Data sheet is avaiable at the web site.

    The MaxSonar-EZ1:
    is very low cost,
    uses just one trasnducer,
    detects to zero (yes even pressing against the front face),
    detects to 254 inches (6.45 meters),
    is the smallest size (smallest PCB & includes mounting holes),
    is the lowest power (just 2 mA typical at 5V),
    has a controlled narrow long-range beam,

    has a very easy user interface including RS232C, pulse width, and
    analog votlage.

    Please let me know what you think.
