Sensor Field of View (FOV)

What is the FOV of the IR-LOCK sensor?

The default lens included with the IR-LOCK sensor is 3.6mm lens. With this lens, the horizontal FOV is approximately 60 degrees, and the vertical FOV is approximately 35 degrees.

The FOV can be modified by changing the lens. Remember to choose a lens that does NOT include an IR-cut filter. A larger field of view will typically reduce the detection range, since the larger FOV makes everything appear smaller. Also, Keep in mind that changing the lens can effect the controls performance. The relevant code is located in the irlock.cpp file (link).
