hmm, I think arduino can handle the ping range finder. but you need to 
write your specific code.
use a code that you find online (the routine is something like: turn pin 
to outlet, set pin high, wait some milliseconds, set pin low, turn pin 
to inlet, measure the time until you receive the echo...)
and then send the value to pd via serial port (115200).
then measure next value.
I think, you should be able to send at least 20 values per second, but 
that is a guess.
do you need more info for the arduino code? how many sensors do you have?

it is
