FIGURE 9. Demo — Serial Terminal.
Spanning nearly three years of research,
experimentation, and design, I’m extremely satisfied
with the outcome of the Laser Range Finder project.
I’ve met my goals of creating a low cost, easy-to-use
device and look forward to seeing what sorts of
applications the LRF is used for. Since the entire
project is released as open source, I also hope that
my work is used as a starting point to create other
interesting Propeller-controlled camera/vision systems.
