I’m using an HC-SR04 sensor right now, but I find that the single output doesn’t provide me with enough data about the environment around it.
I’ve been looking into sensors I could potentially use for a while now, but didn’t really find anything at an acceptable price (<$100 preferably). Are there any solutions to measure the distance at several angles, other than using multiple sensors or using a servo motor? The angles are fixed; I need to retrieve data right in front of the sensor, and preferably at about 10 degrees to all four sides of it, so Im able to estimate the shape of the object.
Ultrasonic has my preference, but infrared can be acceptable.
