Sensors (sometimes referred as a plate) are a type of control device used by the Galactic Federation in Metroid: Other M. Appearing in all regions of the BOTTLE SHIP, sensors are small panels with blue-green coloring attached to walls. From a distance, they are pink-red in color. Once close enough, the sensors turn green and Samus can fire a fully charged shot at it to activate a device or trigger an event. It can also be activated if shot with uncharged shots.
It is unknown how sensors were supposed to be activated by the BOTTLE SHIP's crew (who were not equipped with beam weapons). It is possible that sensors also respond to electromagnetic signals emitted by some form of handheld remote control device.
- Strangely, Sensors do not have any concept art.
