Description [Hide]

Bittybot is known for making really small systems. Here's one of their larger ones - a 3-direction object sensor, with a 4~6" (10.16-15.24cm) range. It's based on the Sharp IS471 sensor, which has a built-in oscillator & driver for the IR LED, and a built-in IR sensor. Here's the stats:

  • 1.90" x 0.50" x 0.35" thick (4.82 x 1.27 x 0.89cm)
  • Short-range sensing of up to 4-6" (10.16-15.24cm)
  • On-board "Objected detected" indicator LEDs eases debugging
  • High/low digital output for each sensor makes it easy to interface with most microcontrollers
  • Digital output goes "low" when an object is in range
  • Based on Sharp's popular IS471F sensor -- this sensor modulates the emitter IR LEDs and filters out return signals outside the modulation frequency for increased immunity to false triggering
  • 5V operation
