Abstract

An inexpensive optical reflective sensor was evaluated for possible use as a precision proximity sensor. The output signal of the sensor was measured as a function of the distance of a flat reflecting surface from the front glass window of the sensor. The experimental data support the hypothesis that the sensor may be used as a precision proximity sensor.
