||Uses ultrasonic sound
waves to measure distance. Measures distance from 1 inch to 10 feet. Commonly used to avoid obstacles.
||Slows down and eventually stops as Autopilot or similar robot running Driver Control Program as the robot approaches an obstacle.
||Detects the color of objects. Measures independent red, green, and blue in 256
