Light Sensor Temperature Sensor Rotary Sensor
Light Sensor
Our Price: $4.95
Temperature Sensor
Our Price: $4.95
Rotary Sensor
Our Price: $9.95

Hummingbird robotics kit light sensor. The sensor responds to the intensity of light level with increasing signal voltage. It is made of a voltage divider containing a photoconductive cell in series with an integrated 4.7K resistor and a 50 cm braided cable.

Hummingbird temperature sensor. The temperature sensor reports the ambient temperature of the black probe at the tip of the sensor. The sensor is composed of a
MF52 NTC Thermistor
with an integrated 10k resistor and a 50 cm braided cable.

The Hummingbird rotary sensor is a simple 1-turn potentiometer wired with a 50 cm braided cable. The cable contains an integrated resistor on the signal wire to protect the sensor in the event that it is connected incorrectly.
Sound Sensor Joystick Vernier BTA Sensor Adapter
Sound Sensor
Our Price: $9.95
Our Price: $9.95

The Hummingbird sound sensor outputs a signal based on the amount of ambient sound it detects. It lets you make robots that react to speaking, clapping, drum solos, and more!
The sensor requires 3.6 to 5.5V to operate, and includes a protection diode to prevent damage if it is plugged in incorrectly.

A thumb joystick for the Hummingbird with an integrated push button. Great for controlling robots of all types, or use one in combination with the rotary sensor and create a custom game controller for Scratch games.

Use the Vernier BTA Sensor Adapter to connect Hummingbird to Vernier's impressive lineup of BTA (analog) sensors. Take measurements of pH, soil moisture, humidity, dissolved oxygen, force, magnetic field, and a hundred other characteristics! Feed the data from these measurements into your programs and create Hummingbird robots that act on this information by moving servos or motors, flashing lights, and making sound. Detailed directions can be found at our Vernier sensors tutorial.

Distance Sensor
Distance Sensor
Our Price: $17.95

Hummingbird kit distance sensor. Detect people walking past, create obstacle avoiding robots, or map out a maze.
The sensor is based on the Sharp GP2Y0A60SZ0F module and can reliably detect objects from 5 to 100 centimeters away. The sensor features a few improvements over standard IR distance sensors:
  • Range (5 to 100+ cm)
  • Run off 4.5 to 5.5V by default, but can be switched to 2.7V to 3.6V mode by removing the resistor on the opposite side of the board from the connector.
  • 50 cm braided cable included
  • Protection diode protects sensor from reverse voltage
