    If you want to add an ultrasonic range finder to a project:

    If you want to build your own ultrasonic range finder:

    Build your own Laser range finders:

    Buy a laser range finder:
    http://www.google.com/products?hl=e...esult_group&ct=title&resnum=1&ved=0CFEQrQQwAA

    Or just do what I did and google:
    "range finder kits"
    "ultrasonic range finder"
    "laser range finder"

    @one 2 3 : Again, what minimal distance do you need to detect? There are even cheaper laser sensors than those in the above link, but we need to know the minimal distance to give a good recommendation.
