IR Range Finder

Demonstration setup for range finder IR connected to NI my RIO MXP.
This project introduces students to the operation, interface theory, and features of an IR sensor. Students build an interface circuit and use LabVIEW and myRIO to acquire and display proximity data. Through these activities, students follow steps to demonstrate correct operation of the IR sensor, watch videos involving theory, and participate in a short activity after each video.
