What are we going to do?
In this activity we are going to continue working on our our Humbot mi:sumo.
At the end of this activity, we'll be able to control our Humbot mi:sumo with a smartphone or tablet using Bluetooth communication.
Now it's your turn!
Now that you have tried the robot, you may have noticed that it doesn't turn right and left equally. That could be caused by the motors. If you have this problem, don't worry, you can fix it by changing the values that make each motor move. If you don't have this kind of problem, it's also interesting that you follow this instructions because you can change the speed at which your robot is moving. Either way, here you have the instructions:
- Open the robot code from your editor and take a look at the red blocks.
- Where it says analog write, followed by a pin number and a bigger number. That last bigger number is the one that we should change to make it go faster or slower.
- This number can be adjusted from 0 to 1023 (slower to faster).
- Make some changes and find the best speed to make it manageable
Now that we control the Humbot mi:sumo, are you ready for a battle?
You can draw a circle (with tape) on the floor and you can make some battles between robots. Who will be the master Humbot mi:sumo?
When you finish the workshop, please take a minute to answer this survey (Catalan version). It will help me improve the course, thanks!
