This is an Infrared Proximity Sensor - great for adding obstacle avoidance functionality to your Arduino robot project!
The sensor emits a beam of light and receives the reflected beam back, which is then used to calculate distance from a nearby object. The sensitivity can be adjusted using the onboard potentiometer.
A 4-pin XH2.54 wire is included, which has female jumper ends for connecting to your microcontroller.

How To Use
In the case of working with an MCU:
- VCC ↔ 3.3V ~ 5V
- GND ↔ GND
- AOUT ↔ MCU.IO (analogue output)
- DOUT ↔ MCU.IO (digital output)
