VEX IQ Distance Sensor (2nd Generation)
The IQ Distance Sensor measures distance to an object, approximate object size and approach speed.
- Range of 20mm to 200mm with an accuracy of +/‐15mm
- Range of 20mm to 2,000mm with an accuracy of ~ 5%
- Object size is reported as small, medium or large
- Approach speed measures the approach speed of the object to the sensor
The IQ Distance Sensor works with both IQ Robot Brains (1st and 2nd generation).
The IQ Distance Sensor uses a classroom safe Class 1 Laser, similar to those used on modern cell phones for head detection. The laser allows the sensor to have a very narrow field of view, so detection is always directly in front of the sensor.
