This breakout is chock full o 'sensors! Add basic sensing gesture, RGB color sensing, proximity sensing, or ambient light sensing to your project with the Adafruit APDS9960 Proximity, Light, RGB and Gesture Sensor. When you are connected to your microcontroller (running our library code) it can detect simple gestures (left to right, left to right, up to down, up to currently supported), return the amount of red, blue, green, and clear light , or return how close an object is to the front of the sensor. This device uses an I2C interface so it's easy to wire up and use.

The APDS9960 from Avago Technologies has an integrated IR LED and driver, with the direction of IR energy from the LED. With the 8 bit resolution, it is possible to measure the distance to the object.

Since there are four IR sensors, you can measure the changes in light. Our main functions are: zigzag, clockwise or counterclockwise circle, near to far, etc. could also be detected with additional code.

The APDS9960 has a configurable interrupt that can fire when certain proximity is broken, or a color sensor breaks at certain threshold.

For your convenience we have put the sensor on a PCB with a 3.3V regulator and some level shifting so it can be easily used with your favorite 3.3V or 5V microcontroller.
