Post Built-in Simple HiTech IRL Driver?
The release notes for RobotC 1.91 Beta say that there is now a built-in simple driver for the HiTech IRL sensor. It says that it is good enough for simple applications but more complex ones will need the full driver include file (Xander's).

Unfortunately, there does not appear to be any information on how to use the built-in driver in the help files. Is there documentation someplace, or can someone post a simple example?

Thanks!
-Bill

Bill,

I think you mean this
Quote:
Added simple integrated device driver for HiTechnic IR Seeker. Only returns single number direction. For more sophisticated drivers use version from include file.


The IR Link (HTIRL) is a totally different sensor from the IR Seeker. The built-in IR Seeker driver will return the direction of the signal using the standard SensorValue[S1...S4] method. The driver from the 3rd Party Driver Suite will also allow you to gather info like signal strength, etc.

Regards,
Xander
