Sensors with Aluminum Stand Kit

Added to your shopping cart

Designed for mounting two distance sensors together, this stylish aluminum dual sensor stand is a perfect addition to your robotics project.

The combination of both ultrasound and infrared object sensing provides an enhanced level of collision and proximity detection. The PING))) and IR Sensors will detect many of the same obstacles (walls, furniture, etc.) but the Sharp IR can detect soft fabric obstacles like curtains that the PING))) cannot, and the PING))) will detect transparent and semi-transparent obstacles like windows that the Sharp IR cannot. Each sensor covers for the limitations of the other, which leads to extremely reliable navigation and obstacle avoidance for your robot.
