Can these sensors be used as a switch?
I have 3 bumpers I would like to replace with the infared sensors.
The Infras would give me a no contact switch to controll my servos.
Has anyone done this before?

**It would depend on what the sensor was seeing when it gets close so something as apposed to when it is not. If you can always get a different output or range of outputs from when it is close to something, then you can react to that reading exactly the same way you would react to a bumper switch being actuated. **

Yep, My project worked.
I used a small mirror to reflect the Infared light back to the sensor and now it acts as a on/off switch. As the mirror passes the Infa, The infa stops the motor as I needed.
