The IR Distance Sensor GP2Y0A21YK0F uses a beam of infrared light to reflect off an object to measure its distance. Because it uses triangulation of the beam of light to calculate the distance, it is able to provide consistent and reliable readings which are less sensitive to temperature variation or the object’s reflectivity. The sensor outputs an analog voltage corresponding to the distance of the object, and can easily be read using an inexpensive analog to digital converter (ADC) chip.
Our PING)))™ ultrasonic sensor provides an easy method of distance measurement. This sensor is perfect for any number of applications that require you to perform measurements between moving or stationary objects. Interfacing to a microcontroller is a snap. A single I/O pin is used to trigger an ultrasonic burst (well above human hearing) and then "listen" for the echo return pulse. The sensor measures the time required for the echo return, and returns this value to the microcontroller as a variable-width pulse via the same I/O pin.

Input: AC 100-240V
Output Voltage: 7.2V-12V
Charging Current: 0.9A/1.8A
Applicable Battery Types: NiMH/NiCd
Do not overcharge
Disconnect the battery from the charger once it indicates a full charge.
Typical charge time does not exceed 2 hours.
Do not charge a battery that hasn't been discharged significantly. Running the robot under minimal load for a few minutes will not significantly discharge the battery.
Minimum no-load voltage: 9.0V
Discharging the battery past 9.0V can reduce the lifespan of the battery and can permanently damage the cells.
Periodic dips below 9.0V when under load is expected and OK. Don't forget to unplug your battery after you are finished running the robot and don't run your robot until it completely stops responding!
Operating Temp: 0 ~ 40°C
Let the battery cool before and after charging.
The battery may feel warm after heavy loading or after charging. This is normal
The Cobra Line Follower Array provides 4 X QRE1113 IR reflectance sensor mounted on a 9mm pitch Each sensor is comprised of two parts - an IR emitting LED and an IR sensitive phototransistor. When you apply power to the VCC and GND pins the IR LED inside the sensor will illuminate.
The Studica Line Sensor Board consists of 4 IR LED/phototransistor pairs, making it a great detector for a line-following robot. The Line Sensor Board allows the robot to tell objects or surfaces apart based on how dark or light they are. It shines a beam of infrared light out onto the object, and measures how much light is reflected back.
Each sensor provides a separate analog voltage output. The sensor board is an infrared emitter/receiver that is able to differentiate between a dark surface (with low IR reflectivity – 3.3V to 5V) and a light surface (with high IR reflectivity – 0V to 0.5V). However, this range can vary depended on the installed height of the sensor board.
The optimum height distance is 3-5 mm; however, the reflectivity values will change depending on distance. A daylight filter is built into the sensor.
