Using IR Proximity Sensors on Robots

Posted 5 Dec 2006 at 01:08 UTC by steve Share This

Chris Schur has completed a very detailed page on the use of IR proximity sensors for mobile robots. It starts off with the basics of how IR sensors work. Chris has gone to the trouble of taking some IR photos to show what a typical room looks like in infrared. He spends some time talking about how to determine the beam spread of IR LEDs and what it means to the placement and number of sensors your robot needs. There's also a lengthy section detailing many robot behaviors related to IR sensors and the potential pitfalls your robot may encounter. If you missed it, Chris also created an excellent bumper logic tutorial.
