IQ Distance Sensor (2nd Generation)
The IQ Distance Sensor measures distance to an object, approximate object size and approach speed.
- Range of 20mm to 200mm with an accuracy of +/‐15mm
- Range of 20mm to 2,000mm with an accuracy of ~ 5%
- Object size is reported as small, medium or large
- Approach speed measures the approach speed of the object to the sensor
The IQ Distance Sensor uses a classroom safe Class 1 Laser, similar to those used on modern cell phones for head detection. The laser allows the sensor to have a very narrow field of view, so detection is always directly in front of the sensor.
The IQ Distance Sensor works with both IQ Robot Brains (1st and 2nd generation).
