About BittyBot

ProxDot
ProxDot
  • Tiny single-sensor object-detector
  • Only 0.40" x 0.35" x 0.14" thick
  • Small enough to stick just about anywhere on your robot
  • Short-range sensing of up to 4-6"
  • "Objected detected" indicator LED eases debugging and adds to your robot's asthetics.
  • Single high/low digital output easy to interface with most microcontrollers
  • Digital output goes "low" when an object is in range
  • Based on Sharp's popular IS471F sensor -- this sensor modulates the emitter IR LEDs and filters out return signals outside the modulation frequency for increased immunity to false triggering
  • Available with a red, green, orange, or yellow indicator LED
  • 5V operation
