The GP2Y0A710K0F from Sharp is a distance measuring sensor unit. This unit is composed of an integrated combination of PSD (position sensitive detector), IRED (infrared emitting diode) and signal processing circuit. This extra-long-range SHARP distance sensor bounces IR off objects to determine how far away they are. It returns an analog voltage that can be used to determine how close the nearest object is. These sensors are good for detection between 100cm-500cm (1-5 meters / 3-15 feet). The long range makes them a good alternative to sonar sensors. 

Note: Watch out before wiring! The datasheet has wiring details. Connect the two outer ground wires both to ground, the two 'VCC' wires both to 5VDC power, and read the analog signal from the Vo wire. The analog voltage out will range from 3V when an object is about 100cm away and 1.4V when the object is 500cm away. 

To stabilize power supply line, it is recommended to insert a bypass capacitor of 10µF or more between VCC and GND. Use the power supply which can output 350mA or more to operate properly.
