    Hi all
    Anyone knows if there's Arduino shield for proximity sensor?

    Thanks in advance.

    It all depends of what you are trying to detect and the particular application/environment.
    The HC504 is an ultrasonic emiter/receiver perfect for detecting distance to a facing object. There are many other sensors, even combined ones that allow you to detect color and even sense of direction of the detected object...

    It's object proximity detector, Cableguy. specifically hand proximity detector.

    Then the hc504 may suffice... but there are other alternatives that may be aesthetically more suitable like IR based sensors
