EASY plug Ultimate Starter Learning Kit Project 3: Knocking

Posted by Fiona Su on

If you want to build a line tracking robot, the easiest way is to use a line tracking sensor. Line following is the most basic function of smart mobile robot. We designed this new generation of line tracking sensor to be your robot's powerful copilot all the way. It will guide your robot by telling white from black quickly and accurately, via TTL signal. We will make a simple experiment, testing the knock sensor.

Component Introduction
EASY plug Knock Sensor
The knock sensor is mainly composed of SW-280 vibration switch, which is an inductive proximity switch. It is an electronic switch that transmits the sensing result to the circuit device and induces the circuit to start working when the vibration force is induced. The module comes with a positioning hole for you to fix it to other devices. You can make full use of it with creative thinking, like electronic drum, and so on.
