|The Arduino MEGA has 16 analog sensor ports and 53 digital sensor ports.|
|const word SensorBoolean[tSensors sensor]|
|(word) This returns a true or false reading from the sensor. (Mostly used by Touch sensors).
|word SensorRaw[tSensors sensor]|
|(word) This array value will return the "raw" (un-normalized) value of a sensor. Usually this is the raw A-D converted value, which is an analog value between 0 to 1023.
|TSensorTypes SensorType[tSensors sensor]|
|(TSensorTypes) The SensorType array is used to specify what type of sensor is connected to a certain port. Most users should not have to use this functionality and should use the Motors and Sensor Setup instead.
|word SensorValue[tSensors sensor]|
|(word) This array value returns the value of the sensor in a normalized fashion. Rather than returning a raw value of 0 to 1023, ROBOTC will interpret the data from the "SensorType" and return a more accurate representation of the sensor's data. An example of this is the Light Sensor, which will return a percentage value from 0 to 100.
