IS471F - Short Range Opponent Detection

Sharp IS471F Sensor The Sharp IS471F is an infrared sensor can provide opponent dectection over a short range, approximately 50-60mm. This restricted range precludes it from being suitable for use as the main opponent detection sensors but it could be useful as rear or side looking sensors to give a last second chance to turn to an opponents attack.

While an application sheet is to follow, a Topic has been set up on the MiniSumo Forum with an overview and oppertunity for discussion.

This short video shows the limitation of range and colour on detection using this device:
