Color sensors are photoelectric sensors
which use light to digital (LTD), light to voltage (LTV) and light to frequency (LTF) methods to sense light and color. There are two basic color sensing systems: reflective and transmissive. In reflective sensing, the sensor detects the color of light reflected from a surface, while in transmissive sensing; the sensor detects the color of light from a light source. Color sensors provide some reliable solutions to complex automation challenges. They are used for various purposes like detecting components, matching color of different components, verifying steps in manufacturing process, detecting color marks on parts, product packaging, and monitoring color of adhesive tape and so on.

Color provides relevant information for object recognition; this information can be filtered and used for various purposes. The ability to differentiate objects by their colors with incredible accuracy and consistency has significantly driven the growth of color detection sensors. The color detection sensors detect the color of the object by analyzing the light reflected from the surface of the object. Color detection sensors are used in various industries including food and beverage, automotive and manufacturing. These sensors are widely used in consumer electronics for backlight control and display calibration.
