Answered: about the ultrasonic sensor

need some small info on the vex ultrasonic sensor is the same or near the same as the SRF04 ,since it uses ping and return
looking at using it in another microcontroller board for my vex robot design

does VEX have any plans to make a IR distance sensor like the sharp GP2D12 SERIES analog or digital distance measuring sensor

**We are looking at more sensors but we do not have any details to release at this time. **
