    I bought 4 pcs. of sharp gp2y0d340k sensors for my robotics project and unfortunately, couldn't succeed in using those sensors. I wired one of them up to my Arduino Uno just like in the datasheet. And left "eye" of the sensor shines when I look at it with my phone ( emitter led does work I think ) but I constantly get 1 - 1 - 1 .... output from Arduino ( this means that sensor does not "see" anything ). If there are any guys out there who had used this sensor please help us.
