Piicodev Ultrasonic Vs Laser

Hey! I was just wondering which was more reliable in terms of object detection in a circuit; the laser or ultrasonic sensor.

Hi Ezra,

Michael gave a great response to this one recently:

What were you looking to use the sensors for? That’ll help us recommend one over the other.

Hey, thanks for the help. I want a sensor with high reliability in a circuit that detects if something is nearby, but also so it can measure how far away something is within a few metres for a security lock circuit.

I was also wondering if all of the Piicodev libraries were compatible with the Raspberry Pi Pico W as well as the regular Pico.
