Overview

This Digital Encoder kit provides wheel rotation feedback that your Boe-Bot robot can use to perform more consistent maneuvers. The encoder sensors mount next to the 8-spoke wheels, emitting infrared light and detecting reflections as the spokes pass by. 

Key Features:

  • Modulated infrared sensors reduce interference from ambient light
  • Slender mounting brackets attach with your Boe-Bot robot's existing servo screws
  • Encoders work with the included 8-spoke wheels
  • Socketed encoder cables connect to the robot's breadboard or the servo headers

Application Ideas:

  • Dead-reckoning exercises
  • Solving mazes
  • Mapping paths of travel

Notes: Note: Boe-Bot robot not included, sold separately.
