This optical dust sensor GP2Y1010AU0F module is used to detect dust particles in the air. This sensor has an infrared emitting diode (IRED) and a phototransistor diagonally arranged which detects the reflected light of dust in the air. The dust sensor is mainly used for dust removal robots, air purifiers, etc.
This Dust Sensor GP2Y1010AU0F for Arduino is based on Sharp's GP2Y1010AU0F dust sensor, which consists of an infrared emitting diode and a phototransistor. Both primary components work hand in hand to detect dust particles. They are diagonally aligned to maximize the reflected light of th
