The Ultrasonic & IR Scanner package is the combination of the SuperDroid Trekker sweeping Ultrasonic detector and the sweeping IR detector. Both sensors are mounted on a common servo and bracket. With both sensors virtually everything can be seen!
The sensors are mounted to a servo that mounts to the front of the Trekker Chassis with the front scanner bracket. It can also be mounted to the top of the Trekker chassis with the single or dual top scanner bracket. The servo can be programmed to scan at any angle from -90 to +90 degrees (0 degrees being straight forward). This gives the Trekker (or your own robot) a set of eyes. The Ultrasonic and IR detector will detect obstacles and cause the robot to stop, the servo can then look in either direction for a preferred way around the obstacle.
The IR detector is a Sharp GP2D12 IR (view data sheet). The IR detector will detect a obstacle and cause the robot to stop. The IR detector can detect objects from 4 inches to 30 inches away. This sensor package will plug directly into the OOPic-R Expansion Board ultrasonic sensor header .
The SRF04 Ultrasonic detector can detect from ~4 inches to ~10 feet. This sensor package will plug directly into the OOPic-R Expansion Board ultrasonic and IR sensor headers or your microcontroller.
Trekker Sweeping Ultrasonic Scanner Package. The servo can be programmed to scan at any angle from -90 to +90 degrees. This gives the Trekker a set of eyes. The Ultrasonic detector can detect from ~4 inches to ~10 feet.
This Bracket is to be used to house any two of the SuperDroid Trekker sweeping scanners and mounts to the top of the Trekker chassis.
This is a small tracked robot equipped with 42mm motors, a motor controller, and Spektrum remote control. This is a customized prebuilt version of TP-230-042 with added track brackets.
