Arduino code and video for Sharp IR distance module

This is the Arduino code and video for Sharp Infrared Sensor Module

This video shows you how to measure the distance between 4cm to 180cm depending on the module, using Arduino. Sharp Analog output modules:
  1. How to use Sharp Infrared Distance Sensor
  2. How to use two or more Sharp Infrared Distance Sensors
  3. Display Distnace on 4 Digit LED Display with Sharp Infrared Distance Sensors
  4. Dispaly distnace from Sharp Infrared Distance Sensors on LCD1602-I2C
  5. Dispaly distnace from Sharp Infrared Distance Sensors on LCD1602 (without I2C)
  6. Distance Measuring Sensors (Website)
  7. Sharp IR Library (from Robojax.com)
  8. Sharp IR Library (from getHub)
