· How to use Arduino with IR Sensor: Circuit Connections: Connect the Vout pin of the sensor to digital pin 7 of Arduino. Connect the Vin pin of the sensor to the 5 V pin of Arduino. Connect the Ground pin of the sensor to the GND pin of Arduino. Connect the LED to digital pin 13. Program: LED Control using IR Sensor input
· An Infrared sensor or commonly known as IR Sensor is an electronic device, used to sense the heat of an object and motion of an object. Basically, an IR Sensor can detect Infrared radiation that is not visible with naked eyes. A body when heated radiates infrared light which can be detected by IR Sensor. [adsforwp id=”3715″]
