Sharp Analog Distance Sensor 20-150cm ~ 8-60″ GP2Y0A02YK0F (No Cable) (Retired)


The Sharp GP2Y0A02YK0F Distance Sensor is an excellent alternative to Ultrasonic distance measurement that helps to combat problems inherent to Audio based distance measurements (like multiple echo, and the requirement of audio transmissible material to function). These sensors are ideal for robotics, and sensor/human interface projects. The use of light as a measuring device opens up interesting applications like touch-less switches, and equipment that powers down when no-one is nearby to save on power.

This particular sensor operates at 4.5 to 5.5 Volts and can measure between 20 and 150 cm obstacles. That range makes this model particularly useful for robotic obstacle avoidance sensing, and mapping applications.

Note: The fact that this sensor uses an IRED (Infrared emitting diode) for it's sensing application means that infrared light can adversely effect its performance. The Virtuabotix Ultrasonic Sensor may be a preferable alternative for full sunlight applications.
