Electronics Engineering Project Idea: Proximity Sensor

CEans,

Those who are looking for a mini-project in electronics - can try to build a proximity sensor.

Wikipedia says: -

A proximity sensor is a sensor able to detect the presence of nearby objects without any physical contact. A proximity sensor often emits an electromagnetic or electrostatic field, or a beam of electromagnetic radiation (infrared, for instance), and looks for changes in the field or return signal. The object being sensed is often referred to as the proximity sensor's target. Different proximity sensor targets demand different sensors. For example, a capacitive or photoelectric sensor might be suitable for a plastic target; an inductive proximity sensor requires a metal target.


How's the idea? Easy? Give it a try and share your learnings with all of us here! :smile:
