progress updates

Adding distance sensor Today I put distance sensor on my Artbot,  I was trying to figure out a nice way to combine the distance sensor and the pattern together. I used the code on the left to test the distance sensor, but at first I set the distance to the obstacle as 100mm. With the…

Arva’s Final Decor

I had some left over masking tape from my design final so I decorated the controller and ArtBot to match. I plan on bringing tape tomorrow to have everyone differentiate their controllers and Bots. The next step are the group posts and the expo. Hopefully they will be an entertaining success.       This…

Finalizing Code and Controller

In our last meeting before the showcase we implemented the controllers and adjusted the patterns to work with the radio. One problem we had encountered was that any actions within the forever loop without any conditions would interrupt and end any commands that the radio sends. This would make the artbot only partially respond to…

12/11 progress (finalizing project)

After many iterations of our codes and trial and errors today we’ve all reached a point of satisfaction for our artbots. All though there is some glitches like with the shaking action which takes some time to work (if it ends up working). I ended up adding the light sensor functionality after Ben’s suggestion the…

12/09 progress (implementing radio)

Today we were trying to get the hang of the micro.bit controller we are using as a radio. We at first just tested it doing something simple like “press A and it moves”. After we all got that down we each worked individually on doing something more creative with our gigglebots such as tilting it…

Progress Update

Radios challenge Today I kept working on the radio function, I am trying to make the radio more interesting. I’m expecting that I can add different action to each button of the controller micro bit. It only works when I trying to add codes for button A and B. However, the picture below shows the…

Progress Update

Got the Pattern I want Today I first tried the very simple code which made a big polygon. After I tried a few times, I got some pattern I like but need to make it in a loop instead of it running only after I click bottom. The final pattern looks nice which like some…

Adding Distance Sensors and Radio

To keep each robot from running into each other and off the canvas we are using distance sensors. The code for it is actually pretty simple and yields this outcome: Since this pretty much works, I then add in my code for the pattern and make it flash red when the sensor is set off….

12/9 work process

In today’s meeting, me and my teammate try to use radio function to control our gigglebot to move. At the last Friday, Celeste, and Dureti try to use the code that showing below to try to make the giggle bot able to avoid object and change direction. In this meeting, I found out if we…
