The Zumo reflection sensor arrangement provides an easy way to add line scanning or edge detection to a Zumo robot. It has six separate reflection sensors, each consisting of an IR transmitter and a phototransistor that reacts depending on how much emitter light is reflected back. The two external sensors are positioned at the edges of the module to maximize their usefulness as edge detectors (e.g. to see the white edge of a sumo ring), while the four internal sensors lie closer together to better detect lines. This sensor is included in the mounted version of the Zumo robot, but not in the kit version.
The sensor assembly is plugged into the front expansion connector of the Zumo shield, which supplies it with power and the necessary I/O connections. The standard I/O connections consist of pins that are not otherwise used by the Zumo shield, but the sensor module allows these pins to be reassigned or certain sensors to be completely disconnected to enable I/O lines. For detailed information on mounting and use with the Zumo Robot, refer to the Zumo Shield User's Manual.
