The Line Follower sensor gives your robot the ability to detect lines or nearby objects. The sensor works by detecting reflected light coming from its own infrared LED. It can detect transitions from light to dark (lines) or even objects directly in front of it.
The sensor has an indicator LED and a M3 mounting hole lets you easily connect one or more of these to the robot chassis.
Note: For the line following application that operate at 5V supply, the minimum gap between surface and sensor is approx. 5mm
- 3V and 5VDC operating voltage
- Maximum sensing distance (white surface): approx. 20mm
- Digital output (logic 0 and 1)
Dimensions: 35 x 10.2 mm
