Remote robot


This project uses two microbits to control a robot remotely using the radio blocks. The remote controller will send our instructions to the robot, the robot board will receive these instructions and control the robot's motors.

We will use the radio and accelerometer.

For this project you will need a two wheeled robot designed for the microbit. Kits are available such as this line following buggy. Or you can download plans and make your own simple two wheeled robot, or find a makerspace, like DoES Liverpool, and design your own.

The instructions for this project are in two parts.

Remote controller

The controller sends information from the accelerometer to the robot, over radio.
