The distance sensor function works very well, and you can control the distance of the sensor from an approaching object to kick off a trigger. However, the color sensor has sensitivity issues and is a hit-and-miss (i would say 75% hit 25% miss). It also suffers from sensing a color that is not there. I placed it to read color tiles on a train track and it registers a trigger even if there is no color there. And in order to read a color, the sensor has to be within millimeters of the colored object. Also, not sure if it is with the Powered Up software, but after a few passes of the sensor with colors, it will ignore subsequent color reads and will stop working. I would recommend this for distance sensor control but it needs major improvement with the range and sensitivity of the color sensor. Eventually I would like to make this work on a linear train track on my holiday village to make the train move back and forth controlled by colored tiles.15 May 2019Callie, Customer ServiceThank you so much for your review! I'm sorry to hear you're having some issues with the Color Sensor. For tip top performance, make sure the sensor is tested in an area with bright and steady lighting while using bricks with varied color values. Black, Brown, Red, Blue and Yellow work the best!
