APDS9960 Proximity, Light, RGB, and Gesture Sensor

SKU 11869960

Wave your hands and light turns on. Can you believe this magic turns into reality? 

This gesture sensor from PMD Way offers touchless gesture sensing, which means you can issue orders simply with a swipe of your hand. Furthermore, it supports RGB color detecting and ambient light measuring. 

This sensor has a high quality and accuracy - thanks to the APDS-9960 chip (a single 8 pin package digital RGB, ambient light, short and gesture sensor device) which uses an infrared LED to help measure short-range gestures. The sensor is able to work under low-light conditions thanks to the RGB and environmental light perception measurement. In addition, with the integrated UV-IR shading filter the board can detect ambient light and color temperature.
