Infrared Sensor

This detects infrared rays sent out by the infrared light-emitting diode (IR-LED) and reflected back by a nearby object, and then transforms them into an electric signal. It also recognizes the signals from the remote control of your home television or videocassette recorder. This allows one to manipulate BontenMaru with a remote control. The Infrared Sensor is to BontenMaru what the eye is to a human being.
