Robobloq + Micro:bit - Motion Sensor


Looking for a fun activity for your robot and micro:bit? Why not turn your micro:bit into a motion sensor in order to detect if any robots are around!

In the video below, we connected the micro:bit to a PIR motion sensor and RGB light. We then added a code so if the PIR sensor was triggered, the RGB light would turn red and an X would appear on the micro:bit. However, if the sensor was not triggered, the light would be green.

For the setup, we put a case around the motion sensor so it could not be triggered from behind, only the front. Therefore, when the robot drives past the sensor, the light turns red and an X appears.
