Re: IR Sensor - Signal Strength
You could compensate for the battery level if you code it that way. It is possible to read the immediate and average battery levels using intrinsic variables.
Don't ask me how it would work, though
I am also not sure if would be necessary since most HiTechnic sensors work internally at a 3V3 level, so they may step down the 4V5-4V8, which would pretty much eliminate the dips you'd see with an analogue sensor.
