Flotilla - Colour

The Colour module detects RGB colour, as well as ambient light level. It also has two bright white LEDs to illuminate objects whose colour is being detected.

It uses the TCS3472 colour sensor. It's ideal for using in line-following robots, detecting fruits, or sorting M&M's!


  • TCS3472 RGB colour sensor
  • Can also detect ambient light level
  • Two bright white LEDs for illumination
  • Micro USB connector
