Using Infrared Sensors for Robot Navigation

Jose Avendano explains how to process analog and digital signals from infrared sensors to help robots navigate environments. This video covers the basic operating principles of infrared sensors and how they can be applied to detect obstacles and detect and follow lines. He will also show how to create an odometry algorithm to derive distance traveled.
