  • Maxbotix XL-MaxSonar-EZ0 High Performance Sonar Module
    Simple to Use
    Review by Nathan
    Initially, I had purchased this device to work with my APM 2.5, but later found that APM firmware does not yet support range finders. To date, I have not been able to establish proof of concept. The unit was easy to assemble and appears to be functioning correctly with good accuracy.

  • Maxbotix I2CXL-MaxSonar-EZ4 High Performance Sonar
    Amazing Sonar!!!
    Review by Alvaro
    I use it in multirotor applications and due its comunicacion is through I2C port, it is less affected by the interferences of my motors and wiring, I recommend it.

  • Sharp GP2Y0A710K0F IR Range Sensor - 100 to 550cm
    I truly recommend it
    Review by Mario V
    It works great, it has a very long range, for the price an money, good choice.

  • SeeedStudio Ultrasonic Range Finder
    love this sensor
    Review by Jarrod
    This is a great sensor and with some of the sample code from Ardunio it's super easy to setup and use.

  • Maxbotix XL-MaxSonar-WRCA1 Weather Resistant Ultrasonic Range Finder
    Works well
    Review by Peter
    Easy to use. Quite accurate. Very sensitive so best to take a series of readings and use median or averaging rather than spot readings.

Basics: How Do I Choose Appropriate Sensors?

Posted on February 06, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Industry, Where to Start.

For a robot to react to its environment, it must first obtain information about its surroundings. Robots are not limited to just sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. Robots can not only sense but give accurate values for a variety of environmental factors that humans are otherwise unaware of or incapable of doing.  Measure Distance [...]

Hi,

i'm about to buy a Netduino plus module and I wondered which sensors (light, infrared, Accelerometers, etc.) and cameras are compatibles with this card. Moreover, what do I need to plug them to the netduino card?

Thank you for you help.

You will need to experiment, not sure if certain types of snow are too porous to effectively work with ultrasonic rangefinders. One common practice would be to use a combination of ultrasonic and light based sensors, such as a SHARP infrared rangefinder, to compensate for each other's weaknesses.

Hi all,

Anyone have any experience with the Sharp GP2Y0A700K Infrared Sensor?

It really sucks up the current (350ma), but has a range out to ~15ft.

Is it susceptible to florescence light interference like other IR sensors?

Regards,
TCIII
