This project was done by the Microelectronics Students Group from FEUP, Portugal.

The goal was to implement an infrared proximity sensor to read the distance of a target using the XMC4500 board and DAVE3 as the development tool. Generally speaking, all we need for that is a proximity sensor, an analog-to-digital converter, some form of changing voltage to distance and a way of displaying the result. Here's a video of the finished project working:
