In your code sample, show how to do the following:
* read the sensor's output and save in a variable.
* convert the sensor's output range to a voltage range corresponding to the microcontroller's analog-to-digital range.
* convert from voltage to the physical property that the sensor measures. Provide the appropriate math in a separate function, as needed.
* print the raw sensor reading, the voltage reading, and the physical property reading serially

This sensor can detect the presence of a person from up to 300 mm and can work behind any non-conductive material (glass, wood, plastic, etc).

Pin 4 is referred to as the "Sensor Pin" and Pin 2 is referred to as the "Receive Pin". Then connect it to the pad of Paint.
Using different resistor changes the sensitivity. Larger resistors tend to make the sensor more sensitive and as such it will work from farther away.

-Let the Paint dry completely before testing it., on a piece of paper should dry within 10 minutes in optimal conditions. dries the conductivity increases (and will continue to increase to a certain extent even after the Paint "feels" dry), so if your project requires calibration.

-Don't use water to diluid the paint, adding water alters the conductivity of the paint.

!!!Introduction

Put a paragraph or two here introducing the the sensor. You might want to add an introductory image as well. Write in layperson's terms, and define any technical terms you need to use. Add any definitions to the [[(Glossary/)Glossary]] page.

!!!Sources

Outline here where you got your sensor, how much it cost and what your experience of getting it was like.

!!!Applications

Describe some typical applications of this sensor. You can often get this from the datasheet, but a few examples from companies or individuals who've used it would be useful as well.

!!!Electrical Characteristics
Put a link to the datasheet at the top. Also link any retail sources, for example if you're using a breakout board, or any other parts that making the sensor easier.

Give the voltage and amperage ranges, and any other relevant electrical data.

Describe the electrical changes when the sensor senses whatever physical changes it senses. Include graphs as needed.

!!! Pin Descriptions
Give a list of the pins, and a pin diagram as appropriate. Detail the function of each pin in a short paragraph following the list.


!!!Microcontroller Connections
Explain how to connect the sensor to a microcontroller or computer. Include a schematic and any other necessary diagrams. Make sure to include a list of every part in the schematic.

!!!Additional parts needed to use it
List any hardware needed to interface this sensor to a microcontroller or computer.

!!!Code Sample
Give a code sample for the microcontroller you developed the example on. Link it to the Code group of the wiki, formatting the link like this:

[=[[Code.myCodeSample | Code Sample]]=]

In your code sample, show how to do the following:
* read the sensor's output and save in a variable.
* convert the sensor's output range to a voltage range corresponding to the microcontroller's analog-to-digital range.
* convert from voltage to the physical property that the sensor measures. Provide the appropriate math in a separate function, as needed.
* print the raw sensor reading, the voltage reading, and the physical property reading serially

!!!Typical Behavior
Describe the behavior of the sensor when you use it to sense something. Note any peculiarities that you had to work around, or things that might affect someone else's use. Graphs and images are useful here.

!!!Application Notes
Describe your own application of the sensor. Link to any external documentation of your project, and discuss how you got the sensor to do what you needed it to.

!!!References/Bibliography
Add links to any reference material you used to learn about your sensor. Cite your sources for explanations, code, and circuits.

!!!Keywords

List any useful tags or keywords that will make this report more searchable.
