Simple IR LED CKT
We will be using over here an irled pair and a comparator .When the reciver led recivers the signal the voltage acros it would be going high.This we would be putting across the + ve of comparator, n to the -ve of comparator we wuld be using a potentiometer . When the reciver does not recive any signal the voltage across the pot wuld be set up in such a way tat voltage across it is high so the output wuld be zero volts.
Wehen the reciver recieves the signal the voltage at +ve of comparator would be more than that of -ve end so the out put wuld be high.The pot is used to adjust from how much distance the reciever is able to detect .
THE LED WHICH U C IN THE CKT FROM LEFT ARE 1ST ONES A IRLED TRANSMITTER ,2ND ONE IS A IR TRANSMITTER AND THE 3RD ONE IS A NORMAL LED WHICH WILL GLOW MOSTLY RED IS USED
From my xperince i can tell tat this will give u arnd 5 cm obstacle detection , voltage drop across reciver for me was .47V when it didnt sense the obstacle , when it did sense it was giving arnd.58v so now the voltage at the -ve pin shld be brought to this voltage by rotating the pot .
The leb which u c at the ouput will glow when it detects an obstacle.
The output which u get from the comparator will be fed to logic gates r micrcontrollers .
