Infrared vs. Ultrasonic - What You Should Know

Over at SocietyofRobots.com , I wrote a tutorial explaining the pros and cons of using infrared and ultrasonic. I compared and contrasted them and wrote a bit of background information on the sensors.
The tutorial is titled Infrared vs. Ultrasonic - What You Should Know

Note: Ultrasonic is basically sonar : Infrared vs. Sonar is a valid title too
Cheers,
Eric

Thanks for sharing, hope to experiment with the Ping one of these days. For now I am going to experiment with separate detector/emitter modules, play with my own triangulation arrangement, etc.
