Range Scanner like Park Assist
Visualizes the reading of a range finder, mounted on a servo. Scans a Semi Circle with an adjustable resolution.
Uses a Sharp Range Finder with 80cm range. A different range / finder will require a calibration - the calibration inside the code is not perfect yet. The arduino outputs csv data to the serial port, which a groovy program picks up. The groovy code is adapted to run on OSX. RXTX the serial library is available for OSX, Windows and Linux, so porting should be a snap.
