This kit is an add-on for the Boe-Bot to provide wheel odometry. The resulting position feedback can be used to improve dead-reckoning, solve mazes, and map paths of travel.
The infrared reflective sensors in this kit mount next to your Boe-Bot robot's wheels to count cycles using the holes in the wheels. The sensors operate on 5V DC and communicate as open-collector transistors.
This is not a complete robot! This is a modification designed for the Boe-Bot.
