What Does an IR Sensor Do?
An IR sensor, or infrared sensor, detects infrared radiation and measures heat or temperature variations in its surroundings. It converts these changes into electrical signals, making it useful for applications like temperature measurement, motion detection, and remote control systems.
What is the Difference Between IR and Bluetooth?
Infrared (IR) is a form of electromagnetic radiation used for wireless communication, often for remote control. Bluetooth, on the other hand, is a short-range wireless technology that connects devices, enabling data transfer and communication. IR is one-way, while Bluetooth supports two-way data exchange.
