  • Best type of US/Color Sensor?

    Hi! I was wondering what experiences you have had in testing different ultrasonic and color sensors, and what type of adafruit or sparkfun sensor to buy for this season, or even if the modern robotics sensors have been successful. Thanks!

    I have tried both the Adafruit and Modern Robotics Color Sensors. I prefer MR, because they can report the color number, though it takes a little extra code to do so. Also, there is no need to 3D print custom housing for the MR sensors, though the Adafruit ones require it.
