IR Locator 360

The IR Locator detects the direction of IR light in every direction around the robot at a resolution of ±5°. Great for use with the IR Beacon and IR Ball.
SKU: 45-2009
$48.95

The IR Locator has four IR detectors facing forward, back, left, and right. The IR intensity recieved by each of these sensors allows the on-board processor (or PIC) to calculate the direction of the IR Light source to within 5 degrees. The IR Locator can be set to read 1200 or 600Hz IR Light.

Sensor Type: Four Wire I2C Sensor

Default 8-bit I2C Address: 0x1C

Arduino 7-bit I2C Address: 0x0E

Android Studio Example Program

You will need both of the below files in the same program folder.

Android Studio Class MRIIrLocator.java    --Driver/Class

Android Studio Class MRI_Ir_Locator.java     --Example Program

Register Function
0x04 1200 Hz Heading in 5° increments
0x05 1200 Hz Signal Strength
0x06 600 Hz Heading in 5° increments
0x07     600 Hz Signal Strength

The heading value is returned in 5 degree incriments from 0 to 71. If an object were to circle the sensor in a clockwise direction, the value of degrees will increase. If the object were to circle in a counter clockwise direction, the value of the heading will decrease.
