LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Infrared Sensor
Take LEGO® to the next level with the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Infrared Sensor! The Infrared Sensor can be added to LEGO robotic models. This sensor sends out infrared signals and detects the reflection of objects and obstacles, measuring the distance between the sensor and the object.
Investigate the reflectivity of different materials or program your robot to respond to different lengths of proximity to negotiate around a maze. Pupils can really let their imagination take over!
• Teach understanding of infrared and how it can be used in the real world.
• Use the Infrared Sensor to hold scientific and mathematic investigations.
• Prepare pupils for a future in designing, programming and engineering.
