This is a Five IR Sensor Array with Obstacle and Bump Sensor. A 5 IR sensor use with TCRT5000 have a compact construction where the emitting-light source and the detector are arranged in the same direction to sense the presence of an object by using the reflective IR-beam from the object. The operating wavelength is app. 5 cm. The detector consists of a phototransistor. There are 5 sensors connected in an array to form a TCRT 5000 Sensor Module which can be used effectively in different robotic applications such as, Line following robot, Shaft encoder, Obstacle avoidance use.
five IR Sensor Array is one of the best sensors for line follower robot. It have five IR sensor facing down, One IR sensor and a bump sensor (Limit Switch) facing toward front. IR sensors are covered with casing for better precision. Sensor has mounting holes for easy fitting on almost any project
