The Qti infrared sensor

This compact QTI infrared sensor is ideal for mobile robots that have to follow a line on the ground, to solve a maze, to distinguish the edge of a sumo ring or to navigate around obstacles. The QTI sensor consists of an infrared emitter and an infrared receiver. It can distinguish the dark areas with low reflectivity such as a black line on the ground and the white areas with high reflectivity.

The infrared Qti sensor can be connected in two ways:

  • Digital connection: for fast binary black/white line following
  • Analog connection : able to measure different shades of gray

What does QTI stand for?

  • Q: Charge
  • T: Transfer
  • I: Infrared

When your microcontroller measures the time it takes for the QTI's capacitor to decay, it's measuring a rate of charge transfer through an infrared phototransistor. This rate indicates how much infrared is reflecting off a nearby surface.
