The digital EV3 Colour Sensor distinguishes between eight different colours. It also serves as a light sensor by detecting light intensities.
Students can build colour sorting and line-following robots, experiment with light reflection of different colours, and gain experience with a technology that is widely used in industries like recycling, agriculture and packaging.
The EV3 Colour Sensor measures reflected red light and ambient light, from darkness to very bright sunlight and is capable of detecting eight colours. It can tell the difference between colour or black and white, or between blue, green, yellow, red, white and brown.
