    Hello everybody,
    For a school project, I'm building a robot, wich must be able to
    detect obstacles. For that purpose, I've arranged 5 polaroid camera's
    with sonar ranging modules inside it. There are a lot of tutorials at
    the internet, describing how to use the sonar. The only problem is,
    that the modules used for the tutorials aren't the same as the ones I
    have. I have got the Polaroid SX-70 version 2 camera's. This one has
    got other connectors as the usual ones.
    Instead of the 16 pin connector, it has got a 9 pin connector.
    There are also about 6 wires, used for driving the motors etc. to
    focus the camera.
    There are some other possible connections wich aren't used.

    I've made pictures of the module, and I hope somebody can tell me how
    to connect it to my digital interface (to the computer).
    You can download them from

    I hope someone can help me, because the project has to be finished in
    a couple of weeks, and I can't find a way out…

    Thank you in advance!
