- September 18th, 2020Average rating3out of 5 stars3.0Reset button?I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI bought this sensor to go with my LEGO Powered Up vending machine. It worked excellently, but my machine can feature more than just one gumball! A reset block on the app(if there is, ignore this review) is not featured, so even if I trigger the distance sensor again, it will not function. I have to reset my iPad again manually, which is slightly annoying. The sensor also sometimes triggers when the coin has not passed through the machine, it just doesn’t sense the coin. Please add a reset block on the Powered Up app if there isn’t already, and please steady the sensor detection!Play Experience3.0Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money2.0Build Time: 1 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?35Color & Distance Sensor
- June 28th, 2019Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Works 100% with the right coloursI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfNote : Powered Up app needed to use. I have purchased 2 of these from Lego.com and I have fitted one of them to my passenger train 60197, it's in the middle of the loco pointing down at the track, set roughly 5-10mm from the track sleepers. I had to experiment with different colours, red and white were good but yellow was also detected when track went over my laminate flooring. > I use red 4x2 plates on my track in stations stop the train e.g. to load/unload passengers. > I use white 4x2 plates on my track to call sounds and change speed, e.g. horn at tunnel entrance or slow down for a curve With my room/flooring/lighting, all plates are recognised 100% of the time, at hi and low speed, when using red and white plates. I use studded plates as i think the smooth ones are too reflective/shiny.

- February 4th, 2020Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Sensor works great, interface a challengeI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SonBought this (as many do) to make an automatic train (that will stop and wait at stations etc), by placing coloured tiles on the track bed. It is easy to fit to the underside of the passenger train (60197), through the square hold in the baseplate with just a single bracket and the sensor sitting at the same height as the bottom of the bogie. Once I fought the iPad app into submission, the colour sensor (I haven't used the distance feature) worked with a range of coloured tiles, eg red (stop & wait), green (speed up) and yellow (slow down). I had the track on a black tablecloth and have not, so far had any issues with unexpected colour detection. The coding was something of a challenge as you have to handle the idiosyncracies of the sensor with very little guidance (eg the polling frequency of the sensor: once you have detected a colour and performed the action, put in a loop that only exits when that colour changes. Otherwise you can have multiple detections of the same colour leading to unexpected results). Also, in the Mindstorms coding you can have one block to handle multiple possibilities (ie a switch statement) … I haven't found this in the Powered Up interface, and instead have a succession of nested binary "if" blocks.Play Experience3.0Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money5.0Building Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Color & Distance Sensor
- April 29th, 2020Average rating3out of 5 stars3.0Useful for basic automation of trains, only basicReynard |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI played around with this sensor to automate my Lego Trains. It was pretty cool but the system has options (through the Powered Up App) to sense 9 colors (black, blue, green, yellow, red, white, purple, teal, and orange) as well no color. It really only senses 5 of these from what I can tell, none/black, green, yellow, red, and blue. The sensor has a light which is great 'cause if you put it under the trains (I put it in the new version of the cargo train by shifting backward the battery box) it won't have much light. It's really cool 'cause I can automate a lot of stuff with, but since it doesn't really sense the rest of the colors (even when changing the color of the sensor's light) it can't be used as precisely as I'd like. Still, it's not very expensive and the basic hub comes with enough ports for a train motor and a sensor so you don't need more equipment than the sensor to upgrade your setup.8 May 2020Emily, Customer ServiceWe're sorry you had some trouble getting your sensor to work with some colors. We'd be happy to help with some troubleshooting.
