Ever want your robot to hunt down objects based on heat or flame? This small form factor IR camera is capable of tracking up to four heat/IR sources. The applications are plenty and can go from tracking of robots with IR transmitters for navigation to light barriers, determining the direction where the object is going, and working as a flame sensor or tracking heat sources. It's fully compatible with Arduino with only four wires: two for power supply and two for I2C.
This infrared positioning camera can be controlled with Arduino, AVR via I2C interface. It is able to track mobile infrared points and to transmit the data back to the host. The horizontal angle of camera is 33 degrees while the vertical angle is 23 degrees. It returns up to four points at a time when it identifies an object. With advantages of high resolution, high sensitivity, high accuracy, small build and light weight, this Positioning IR Camera an be widely used in robot automatic search, robot soccer game, mobile trajectory recognition.
Warning: Make sure the user knows about the power supply either directly on the sticker on the module or/and in the manual.
