Sensors act as an electronic eye for robots. No robot is complete without at least one type of sensor. The original MaxSonar sensors were inspired by the need for a reliable and cost-effective ranging solution for an elementary school student’s robotics project. Along with the inspiration to be implemented by students, MaxSonar sensors offer a choice from a wide range of interfaces.
Our free-running operation simplifies user code and setup. Because of the ease of use, MaxSonar sensors are used in every robot size.

Sensors For All Environments
Try These First!
Designed for robotic environments where moisture, condensation, heavy dust, and other ultrasonic sensors are present.
Designed for robotic applications where the sensor requires custom mounting. This sensor is a great choice for environments with a single sensor or strict mounting environments.
Uses the I2C communication protocol. This sensor is available in full size or compact housings for easy mounting and configuration.
Great for robotics applications where durability is required. These rugged sensors are excellent for environments where robots may come in contact with other robots, objects, or condensation.
