Description Attachments

The SparkFun Proximity Sensing Kit is a comprehensive package for anyone looking to dive into proximity sensing projects. This kit includes an infrared proximity sensor, a RedBoard Qwiic, and hookup wire for easy setup. It also comes with a pack of assorted 5mm LED's for visual indication and an MP3 shield with a speaker for auditory alerts. This kit is perfect for a wide range of applications, from social distancing and automatic doors to robotics and Halloween projects.

The SparkFun Proximity Sensing Kit is compatible with the Qwiic ecosystem of boards, providing numerous options for project expansion. However, please note that the MP3 Player Shield included in the kit will require soldering to attach it to the SparkFun RedBoard. This kit comes with a set of headers, so you'll only need a soldering iron and solder.

The SparkFun Qwiic Connect System is a unique ecosystem of I2C sensors, actuators, shields, and cables that simplifies prototyping and reduces errors. All Qwiic-enabled boards use a common 1mm pitch, 4-pin JST connector, which reduces the required PCB space and eliminates the risk of incorrect connections thanks to its polarized design.

The SparkFun Proximity Sensing Kit includes the following:

  • SparkFun RedBoard Qwiic
  • Infrared Proximity Sensor
  • Hamburger Mini Speaker
  • SparkFun MP3 Player Shield
  • Battery Holder - 4xAA to Barrel Jack
  • LED Rainbow Pack
  • Stackable Header Kit
  • Infrared Sensor Jumper Wire
  • microSD Card - 1GB
