Robobuilder - Head with Distance Sensor Black

Robobuilder - Head with Distance Sensor Black

This is the Standard Robobuilder Head with the Sharp IR Distance Sensor (also known as Object Detection Sensor) inside.

The Standard 5710K models don't include the Distance Sensor inside the head. Therefore installing this head upgrade, gives the Robot the capability to navigate an enviroment autonomously, avoiding obstacles or seeking for objects.
(Please Note: if you purchased your Robobuilder 5710K from Robosavvy the head you received already includes the Sharp IR Distance Sensor; Robosavvy has always offered this upgrade for free with all the 5710K models purchased from us).

Inside a Sharp Infrared Distance Sensor and an IR receiver for the Remote Control are installed.
The PCB inside also includes some free holes for Prototyping your own electronics.

You can find detailed pictures of the inside of the Head here.

The head is assembled directly onto Robobuilder and connects to the RBC controller. If you are upgrading your robot with this head, just remove the old head and attach the new one. It is as simple as that.
You can then use the Robobuilder Programming tools to develop autonomous behaviours that take advantage of this new sensor.


  • Robobuilder Head in Black
  • Sharp IR Distance Sensor and IR Receiver for Remote inside the Head
