How does the EV3 infrared sensor work?

The digital EV3 Infrared Seeking Sensor detects proximity to the robot and reads signals emitted by the EV3 Infrared Beacon. Students can create remotely-controlled robots, navigate obstacle courses and learn how infrared technology is used in TV remotes, surveillance systems and even in target acquisition equipment.

Why can the EV3 Brick tell the type of sensor connected to its port?

If the EV3 Brick is connected to your computer while you program, the software will automatically identify which port is being used for each sensor or motor. The software cannot distinguish between two or more identical sensors or motors.

Can you program EV3 with Python?

Program in Python with EV3 You can now use your EV3 Brick to unleash the power of Python programming using MicroPython. Simply install the EV3 MicroPython image onto any micro SD card and boot up your EV3 Brick from it to start programming straight away.

Where do you connect the USB cord in the EV3 controller?

Connecting your LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 with the USB cable

  1. To connect your LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 with your USB cable, plug the Mini-USB end of the cable into the EV3 Intelligent Brick’s PC Port (located next to Port D).
  2. The button below ‘USB’ in the Hardware Page of the EV3 software will also be filled in.

How do the EV3 sensors control an autonomous robot?

The infrared sensor will only detect a beacon on the channel specified in the software. If two robots are remote controlled by two different infrared beacons, they should use different channels, otherwise one beacon will control all of the robots on its channel.
