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
(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.
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.
