Line Following TCRT5000 IR Description:
Line Following TCRT5000 IR Infrared Reflective IR Sensor Module ,TCRT5000 infrared sensor emits infrared emitting diode continuously when no infrared rays emitted or reflected back is reflected back but the strength is not large enough, the phototransistor has been in the off state, and the output terminal of the module is high, indicating that the diode has been in the off state; in the object to be detected within the detection range, and the intensity of the reflected infrared rays is large enough, phototransistor saturated, and the output terminal of the module is low, the indicator LED is lit.
In the broadest definition, a sensor is a device, module, machine, or subsystem that detects events or changes in its environment and sends the information to other electronics, frequently a computer processor. Sensors are always used with other electronics.
Sensors are used in everyday objects such as touch-sensitive elevator buttons (tactile sensor) and lamps which dim or brighten by touching the base, and in innumerable applications of which most people are never aware. With advances in micromachinery and easy-to-use microcontroller platforms, the uses of sensors have expanded beyond the traditional fields of temperature, pressure and flow measurement, for example into MARG sensors.
