hello. I am a software person who wants to create a device to measure the speed of a golf club over 2 fixed points. I was looking at the Sharp gp2y0d810z0f pololu.com/catalog/product/1135 and wanted to know if they could detect such a quick movement. Could anyone suggest some form of sensor if the Sharp is not appropriate. many thanks.
100mph is probably too fast for any of our Sharp distance sensors to detect reliably or accurately. You might be able to find a sensor with a faster sampling rate at Pepperl+Fuchs.
