Updated micro:bot Kit Experiment Guide! – News


    We updated some code for the micro:bot kit to help debug and interpret line following sensor readings using the MakeCode Console.




    Based on your feedback, we have updated the micro:bot kit experiment guide!

    Optimum Distance Between Line Following Sensor and Surface

    You’ll find updated code for experiments two and three with an option to output serial data to the MakeCode Console. This is useful when you need to debug and interpret sensor readings when using a line following sensor(s) on different surfaces. If you choose to view the serial output, we include a few highlighted graphs to explain what is going on on different surfaces.

    Output Highlighted using One Line Following Sensor Serial Output Highlighted using Two Line Following Sensors

    Experiment three is now broken up into two parts. We’ll try to follow a straight line made from black electrical tape and stop when we fail to see it. Then we’ll attempt to follow a simple polygon track.
