This package consists of 2 brackets that mount to the front bumper. The brackets hold a IR photo reflector, which is also included. The plow of the bumper switch is inverted for this feature as shown in the above figure. The sensor is used to detect if a ball is caught in the catcher. This kit is generally used in conjunction with a sweeping ultrasonic sensor and an Sharp GPD12 IR sensor mounted to the front bumper. These sensors are used to locate and track the ball and the ball catching sensor is used to confirm the ball has been caught.
This is a basic object detection sensor that transmits a 38.2kHz IR signal and outputs a 5V analog signal depending on what it sees. The sensors comes with all necessary wires, heat shrink and components to mount on your project.
2WD self balancing robot! This kit is a perfect plataform for learning Arduino, PID control, serial communications(Serial, I2C, SPI), PWM signals, IMU filtering, etc.
