I'm in the process of building wheel encoders for my robot and have come across 2 different IR Reflectance sensors.
I'm trying to find out what the potential benefits or drawbacks of each one would be and what I should use for my project.
With the digital one, I presume I will receive a HIGH/LOW reading but I will have no way to adjust the thresholds. Would this eliminate noise as mentioned in this answer?
With the analog one, will I have more control over what's supposed to be HIGH/LOW? Are there benefits to going the analog way and handling the signal through code?
At the moment I'm inclined towards purchasing the digital one for the sake of simplicity but I'd love to hear what you have to say on the matter.
