Laser Rangefinder for feet detector

Hi,

Anyone have any experience using a Laser Rangefinder in OF (http://www.robotshop.com/hokuyo-urg-04lx-ug01-scanning-laser-rangefinder.html). We were considering to use Laser Rangefinder for detecting feet and placing the devices in the floor. Also we were wondering if is working when they cross view of different devices at same time. Any advice is welcome.

thanks!

i know james patten has used one of these before:
