Interesting concept... how do you plan on integrating it with the EZ-B and ARC/SDK? or will it have its own micro-controller and just feed numerical data to the EZ-B?
Where I work we use them on the front of agv's. They are self contained unit and send bits to the plc on how you program it.

If I could get one for a couple hundred bucks I would love to use it instead of a ping sensor.
Mainly the preparation of image processing procedures need to spend a long time, and I have yet to perfect this device, it still will be the external light, or reflective interference.
