The Cobra Line Follower Array provides 4 X QRE1113 IR reflectance sensor mounted on a 9mm pitch Each sensor is comprised of two parts - an IR emitting LED and an IR sensitive phototransistor. When you apply power to the VCC and GND pins the IR LED inside the sensor will illuminate.
The Studica Line Sensor Board consists of 4 IR LED/phototransistor pairs, making it a great detector for a line-following robot. The Line Sensor Board allows the robot to tell objects or surfaces apart based on how dark or light they are. It shines a beam of infrared light out onto the object, and measures how much light is reflected back.
Each sensor provides a separate analog voltage output. The sensor board is an infrared emitter/receiver that is able to differentiate between a dark surface (with low IR reflectivity – 3.3V to 5V) and a light surface (with high IR reflectivity – 0V to 0.5V). However, this range can vary depended on the installed height of the sensor board.
The optimum height distance is 3-5 mm; however, the reflectivity values will change depending on distance. A daylight filter is built into the sensor.
The Studica Servo Power Module is a 6V, 60W power injector that enables the use of high-power RC servos. The Servo Power Module passes through input signals unaltered while providing up to 60W of total output power across all eight channels. The input and output channels accept standard 3-wire, 0.1” pitch, servo/PWM cables.
The Sharp IR Distance Sensor GP2Y0A21YK0F uses a beam of infrared light to reflect off an object to measure its distance. Because it uses triangulation of the beam of light to calculate the distance, it is able to provide consistent and reliable readings which are less sensitive to temperature variation or the object’s reflectivity. The sensor outputs an analog voltage corresponding to the distance of the object, and can easily be read using an inexpensive analog to digital converter (ADC) chip.
The Digilent PmodALS demonstrates light-to-digital sensing through a single ambient light sensor. Digilent Engineers designed this Pmod around Texas Instrument's ADC081S021 analog-to-digital converter and Vishay Semiconductor's TEMT6000X01.
A professional introduction to data logging! The stationary sensor station with a moving camera, new environmental sensor and other sensors, enables the measurement of air temperature, humidity, air pressure, air quality, volume and brightness. The models can be programmed and controlled with the graphical programming software ROBO Pro and the ROBOTICS TXT controller, and are ideal for teaching topics such as (data logging, programming and the use of actuators and sensors. The sensors’ data can be collected and plotted on a graph. In addition, the model can connect to a WiFi network, so that the camera can also be controlled from a distance. The TXT controller can also be connected to a cloud server, where the sensors’ data is saved and can be retrieved. So using a user interface, a so-called “dashboard”, the various sensor data can be permanently monitored, and the movement of the camera can be controlled. Further models and applications the pupil can first design and then control are: Barometer (measures air pressure), Damp monitor (measures humidity and air temperature), environmental wellness sensor (measures the air quality, temperature, humidity) with LED display, noise sensor (measures volume) and frost monitor (tests temperature against the freezing point). When the pre-set limit values are exceeded, the system alerts the user via an LED display or with an alarm tone. There are many more possible applications. The innovative teaching material from fischertechnik supports you in practically conveying technical understanding and giving them a real insight. The accompanying instructional booklet, with teaching and lesson materials, offers background information, projects , and programmer tips.

Weight Sensor Module is based on HX711, which is a precision 24-bit analog-to-digital convertor designed for weight scale and industrial control applications to interface directly with a bridge sensor. It not only has a few basic functions, but also contains high integration, fast response, immunity, and other features. This weight sensor lowers the cost of the electronic scale, and at the same time improves performance and reliability. The input interface is compatible with Arduino I/O port. The output adopts compact terminal that makes the sensor easier to connect.
This temperature & humidity sensor provides a pre-calibrated digital output.
A unique capacitive sensor element measures relative humidity and the
temperature is measured by a negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistor.
It has excellent reliability and long term stability. Please note that this
sensor will not work for temperatures below 0 degree.
This water sensor module is part of the Twig system. This sensor works by
having a series of exposed traces connected to ground and interlaced between the
grounded traces are the sens traces. The sensor traces have a weak pull-up
resistor of 1 MΩ. The resistor will pull the sensor trace value high until a
drop of water shorts the sensor trace to the grounded trace. Believe it or not
this circuit will work with the digital I/O pins of your Arduino or you can use
it with the analog pins to detect the amount of water induced contact between
the grounded and sensor traces.
The Hall Sensor measures the Hall Effect, which is a production of a voltage
difference across an electrical conductor, transverse to an electric current in
the conductor as well as a magnetic field perpendicular to the current. The
output of the continuous-time switch Hall sensor on this Twig switches low and
turns on when a magnetic field (south polarity) perpendicular to the Hall sensor
exceeds the BOP threshold, and it switches high and turn on when the magnetic

TinkerKit Hall Sensor module creates a voltage related to the magnetic field around the sensor. This can be used to detect distance from a nearby magnet. Hall sensors can also be used to detect the magnetic field induced in a wire or coil.
TinkerKit Tilt Sensor module can detect when it is at an angle. This module contains two contacts and a small metal ball. When the sensor is in its upright position, the ball bridges the two contacts, completing the circuit. When the board is tilted, the ball moves, and the circuit opens. When upright, the module outputs 5V and when it is tilted, it outputs 0V. When connected to an input on the Arduino using the TinkerKit Shield, you can expect to read a value of 1023 when in its upright position and 0 when it is titled.
This module is sensor. The connector is an output, which must be connected to one of the input connectors on the TinkerKit Shield.
TinkerKit Sensor Shield V.2 allows you to hook up the TinkerKit Sensors and Actuators directly to the Arduino without the use of the breadboard. It has 12 standard TinkerKit 3 pin connectors.
