Obstacle Avoidance with Sharp IR Sensor GP2Y0A02

Hello guys,

I saw already one implemented system of avoidance obstacle with Sharp IR sensor, in a project made for Jose Julio. However, it was four years ago. So I would like your help to clarify some doubts.

Could I use these sensors in a APM 2.5 Copter 3.1?

If not, what kind of sensor could I use for implement a system of avoidance obstacle?

Does anyone have any experience with this and could help me?

Thanks in advance,

Felipe Calixto.

I am also interested in getting an obstacle avoidance sensor for my quadcopter. I have searched online but not got any details on how to go about it.
I know you need some sharp sensors and that’s about it. Any info kindly let me know.
