Sumoeyes Infrared sensor for NXT / EV3
Including €0.01 for ecotax
Mindsensors hit hard with this new infrared sensor for Lego Mindstorms NXT. It detects obstacles in a wide cone while differentiating distances in the cone!
Using the infrared sensor you’ll be able to detect shapes and alignments of obstacles so you can align your robot in front of the obstacle (for a Sumo tournament for example) or to avoid obstacle.
The diagram below shows the cone of the SumoEyes infrared sensor.
This cone defines if an obstacle is located in one of the 6 areas defined by the infrared sensor, so you can determine the position the robot should adopt towards the obstacle.
