Works great!

Provides good data on the RGB scale and also provides two IR readings. Works well with Arduino. The library loaded without any problem and was ready for use right away. You can scan colours from a distance, other sensors require that it is placed with in a few mm from the colour patch. The price was also good. RobotShop shipped right away and I had it at my door in a week.

Fonctionne très bien!

Fournit de bonnes données sur l'échelle RVB et fournit également deux lectures IR. Fonctionne bien avec Arduino. La bibliothèque s'est chargée sans aucun problème et était prête à l'emploi immédiatement. Vous pouvez numériser les couleurs à distance, d'autres capteurs nécessitent qu'il soit placé à quelques mm du patch de couleur. Le prix était également bon. RobotShop a été expédié tout de suite et je l'ai eu à ma porte en une semaine.
