Color Sensor/ Light Sensor (45506)
The digital EV3 Color Sensor distinguishes between eight different colors. It also serves as a light sensor by detecting light intensities. Students can build color sorting and line-following robots, experiment with light reflection of different colors, and gain experience with a technology that is widely used in industries like recycling, agriculture and packaging.
– Measures reflected red light and ambient light, from darkness to very bright sunlight
– Capable of detecting eight colors. It cannot tell the difference between color or black and white, or between blue, green, yellow, red, white and brown
– Sample rate of 1 kHz
– Auto-ID is built into the EV3 software
