I'm trying to detect fast moving objects ( birds ) within 2m - ideally get their range.
I've tried both the MaxSonar and the Sharp IR sensors. They work ok at lower speeds ( Sonar is better ) but both fail as the object moves more quickly.
The Sonar sensor samples 20 times/sec. So it seems this is not fast enough.
I have found a sensor that can sample up to 200 times / sec.

However, this sensor would require me to input a pulse.
I'm a programmer - my hardware skills are minimal.
So the questions -
How hard would it be to build something that could input the pulse at 100 - 150 times a sec ?
Is there an easier way to do this ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
