[SOLVED] sensing distance between robots

I want to measure distance between two edison robots.

Technically, it must be possible using information of IR intensity.

But I cannot find such a function in edpy.

Is there any way to measure distance?

Edison is not currently set up to read IR intensity.

Edison pulses out an IR code when looking for obstacles and raises an “obstacle detected” flag when it sees the code bounce off an object.

User programs only have access to the flag and not to the raw data from the sensor

Heads up

The Australian Federal Parliament has passed a law that extends goods and services tax (GST) to low value imports of physical goods imported by consumers from 1 July 2018.

This means that all customers purchasing Edison robots and accessories with an Australian shipping address must now pay GST. The GST will be automatically added to your purchase and show as a line item on your invoice.
