Bump Switch Kit

Bump Switch Kit


Bump switches can be considered the most basic obstacle sensor there is. Put simply, when the robot hits something, one or both of these small switches is pressed. Although incredibly basic, it is also 100% fool-proof, needing no adjustment either physically or via code. 

If you want to add some extra "I'm stuck" sensing to your robot or are looking for nice, simple sensors, this could be your kit.

*This kit will work with just about any microController at any voltage (3.3v or 5v)

Included in the kit:
  • (2) momentary bump switches
  • Jumper wires
  • Clear, laser cut acrylic plate for mounting to any tadpole kit
  • All hardware needed for assembly
  • No soldering required
