Change Z in real-time based on IR sensor

I have a Duet board on my 3d printer and love it, looked over at my laser and was curious if I could install a Duet board on it, and also have some kind of auto focus sensor on the head that can run the Z table up and down based on the material it is cutting.
Similar to this:
Would something like this work?
The IR sensor doesn't have a true analog output, although it could do with modified firmware and a smoothing capacitor on the output.
