Robogaia IR RangeFinder
What it is?
The rangefinder is a tool that allows you to determine the distance to obstacles and walls in order to avoid them. It is perfect in robotic applications where the robot needs to move and go to a determined position in unknown territory.
- detectable range: 200 mm to 1500 mm (7 to 60 inches )
- 7.5 degrees angular resolution
- 2 scans per second
- 180 degrees view
- 1.5 meter radius
- easy readable output data in text format
- easy interface with other boards
- it comes pre calibrated
How It works
It has two Range sensors that are oriented at 90 degrees. This allows the unit to scan twice as fast as if it would have had only one sensor. The sensors scan 25 points, twice a second.
In the picture it shows the light beams for the two sensors at a determined time.
