The IR Range Sensor is a great way to add range detection to robotic projects that use Cerebot™ boards. The sensor detects reflective objects 10 to 80 cm away. 

The sensor connects to the ADC found on all Cerebot boards. The cable maps the output pins to a 3-pin connector. The yellow wire is for the analog output signal. The pin should be connected to the analog-to-digital converter (ADC) on your microcontroller. The red wire is the Vcc power supply to the sensor and is diode-protected against reverse polarization. The black wire should be connected to the ground of the ADC.
