Pololu introduces an innovative 3-channel time-of-flight distance sensor module, engineered with the OPT3101 IC from Texas Instruments. This compact board emits infrared light in three selectable directions using its six integrated LEDs. The distance is calculated by measuring the time delay of the reflected signal, which can be read through a digital I²C interface. Specially designed to mount to the front of the TI-RSLK MAX robot, this module offers an almost 180-degree combined field of view across the three sensing zones and a maximum range of approximately one meter.
Whether you're navigating tight corners or exploring open spaces, this sensor module is adept at detecting obstacles and calculating distances with precision. It's an ideal companion for the TI-RSLK MAX robot, enhancing its navigation capabilities and providing a wider field of view. This module's unique three-channel design allows for a comprehensive sensing range, making it easier for your robot to interact with its surroundings.
The board's use of infrared light and time-of-flight technology ensures accurate distance measurements, even in challenging conditions. The digital I²C interface provides a straightforward and efficient way of reading these measurements. With a maximum range of approximately one meter, this sensor module is suitable for a variety of applications, from intricate indoor navigation to outdoor exploration.
What sets this Pololu product apart is its unique combination of a wide field of view, precise distance measurements, and user-friendly interface. The three-channel design allows for a nearly 180-degree field of view, ensuring that the robot has a comprehensive understanding of its surroundings. The use of the OPT3101 IC from Texas Instruments guarantees reliable performance and durability. In a nutshell, this sensor module is a robust, reliable, and indispensable tool for any TI-RSLK MAX robot owner.
