Many robotic platforms used in Makerspaces throughout Atlantic Canada come equipped with powerful sensors that can add an additional layer of complexity to your code. In this video segment of the 12 Days of Brilliance, we use the mBot from Makeblock.cc as our model to demonstrate the power of three different sensors: ultrasonic, line and light.
Just to give you some warning… this video is long. However, it does pay close attention to the conditional logic statements you require in order to code your robot to use sensor data.
For more information on how to use sensors with your mBot, make sure to check out our mBot Mastery course found at: http://wp.brilliantlabs.ca/mbot-intro.
Be sure to watch the video to the end for your chance to receive some innovative classroom technology.
