dc.description.abstract In the world of automation, sensors play an important role as the eyes and hands of the machine. Two sensors that are observed in this thesis are the HC-SR04 sonar sensor and the Sharp GP2Y0A21YK infrared sensor. Each sensor has different properties and methods in which they calculate distance in the form of sound or light. In order for these proximity sensors to be considered effective, they should be able to detect a wide variety of targets with various properties including texture, size, positioning and color while being operated in different environments; however, this may not always be the case. Multiple tests are performed on ultrasonic and infrared sensors to determine their accuracy using different filters to improve their outcome. Although not all filters used provide an optimal result for all the test cases, it is concluded that they do offer a slight improvement to the accuracy of the sensors. However, the position of the sensors with respect to the targets and its surroundings greatly affect the performance of the sensor as well as the different target textures, sizes and colors. en
