The photo depicts the schematics for an infrared sensor which allows you to
detect an object's distance from the robot. The big picture problem is attach
this infrared sensor on both wings of the aerial robot. Attaching these sensors on the
wing tips will help the robot navigate through the halls of any building.. This tutorial shows you how to
construct and test one infrared sensor and takes approximately 3 hours to complete.
The rest of the tutorial is presented as follows:
