Nextbot Sensor – Line Follower


7 in stock


The Line Follower sensor is an add-on for your NextBot 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. By measuring the amount of reflected infrared light, it can detect transitions from light to dark (lines) or even objects directly in front of it.

The sensor has a 3-pin header which connects directly to the NextBot Mainboard. A mounting hole lets you easily connect one or more of these to the front or back of your robot chassis.

  • 3 Channel Line Tracking Sensor ModuleWant to make a line following robot? Not a big deal now with this highly efficient 3-way Line Tracking Module. It has 3 TCRT5000 Infrared Line Tracking sensors with on-board comparator, LED indicators and other signal conditioning components. And yes, it is Arduino compatible!This module uses Infrared to detect the line so it has anti-interference ability, visible light will not interfere its operation. The TCRT5000 is a reflective sensor which include an infrared emitter and phototransistor in a leaded package which blocks visible light. It has indicator LEDs on it, when tracing sensor senses a key signal, LED lights, otherwise off.
