APDS-9960 Ambient Light Motion Recognition Module

RGB and gesture sensor, built-in APDS-9960 sensor for ambient light and colour measurement, proximity detection and non-contact gesture detection.

The ambient light dynamic range has also increased from the previous 10K lux to 30K lux, and the solar calibration has been greatly increased to 50K lux, which vastly improves the sensitivity and avoids strong light interference.

The APDS-9960 with built-in UV and IR blocking filters, four separate diodes sensitive to different directions, and an I2C compatible interface.

With this RGB and Gesture Sensor you will be able to control a computer, microcontroller, robot, and more with a simple swipe of your hand.

Detects directional gestures (left to right, right to left, top to bottom, bottom to top)
