Abstract—The article aims to compare two sensors for the possibility of their use in autonomous designs of NanoSumo class robots. The tests were carried out for FOV (field of view), which is a useful detection field. For this purpose, a measuring stand was built, whose operation consisted of moving two screens in two perpendicular axes. The screens are moved in the X-axis to a maximum distance of 50 mm and can be moved to a maximum distance of 172 mm. Lengths have been selected so that they correspond to the ring on which the robot moves. The sensors have also been taken into account as the width of their field of view at the maximum measuring distance does not exceed 50 mm. A white sheet was used as a measuring surface to obtain the best possible results. Finally, the sensors were compared in terms of their FOV. Recommendations on the selection and placement of sensors in the robot are also presented.
