I tested the ambient light sensor as I saw in one of Sphero RVR video using my cell phone back light.
My routine is simple I have the RVR say the word Light and move forward and dark then move backward. I use different values for 0 to 30 to compare to the light sensor values. It works fine from 0 to 72" distance above the sensor using different values such as 10 detect light at 72" , 20 detect light at 36 "from the RVR. This test was done with the hood removed
My questions are as follow:
- Are there known values from dark to full light. I cannot use 100,000 lux in my comparison.
- Would it be possible to see the ambient light values with the sensor values.
