TCRT5000 Infrared Sensor Module IR Line Track



TCRT5000 Infrared Sensor Module is a carrier board for TCRT5000 reflective optical sensor. Although it is designed for use with line following robots, it can be used in sumo- mini sumo robots for line control. The board has digital output. When the sensor detects an object, the output becomes 0V and when it does not detect anything, the output becomes 5V.

What is a line following sensor?
The Line Follower sensor is an add-on for your RedBot that gives your robot the ability to detect lines or nearby objects. The sensor works by detecting reflected light coming from its own infrared LED. … The sensor has a 3-pin header which connects directly to the RedBot Mainboard via female to female jumper wires.
How do line tracker sensors work?
How the Line Tracker Works. The Line Tracker functions by illuminating a surface with its infrared light LED and then the infrared light sensor measures the reflected infrared radiation. … This allows the sensor to detect a dark line on a pale surface, or a pale line on a dark surface.
