Description: Infrared proximity sensor made by Sharp. Part # GP2Y0A21YK has an analog output that varies from 3.1V at 10cm to 0.4V at 80cm. The sensor has a Japanese Solderless Terminal (JST) Connector. We recommend purchasing the related pigtail below or soldering wires directly to the back of the module.

This sensor gives readings that can be converted in distances very easily. My only concern is that is a little noisy and the measurements are not completely stable, they vary within a 2-3 cm range of the real measurement but is normal considering the low cost of the device. The sensor is good for applications that do not require high precision.
