The SparkFun RedBot Sensor – Line Follower is an add-on for the RedBot that gives any robot the ability to detect lines or nearby objects. The sensor works by detecting reflected light coming from its own infrared LED. By measuring the amount of reflected infrared light, it can detect transitions from light to dark (lines) or even objects directly in front of it. The sensor has a 3-pin header that connects directly to the RedBot Mainboard via female-to-female jumper wires. Use the included RedBot library to detect lines or objects.
