Assemble the hardware
1. Assemble the hardware#
1.1. Step 1#
Attach the micro:bit to the Ring:bit expansion board using the short flat head screws.
1.2. Step 2#
Use the longer flat head screws to fasten the seven-hole beam to the corresponding screw holes on the XGO.
1.3. Step 3#
Mount the Ring:bit expansion board with the micro:bit installed on the seven-hole beam using the long pins.
1.4. Step 4#
Connect the DuPont cable reserved by XGO to the corresponding port of the Ring:bit, among which the black DuPont cable is connected to the G port, and the yellow DuPont cable and the blue DuPont cable are connected to the No. 1 and No. 2 ports. Select the appropriate port number.
1.5. Step 5#
Connect your computer to the micro:bit with a USB cable：
1.6. Add XGO extension library#
The steps are as follows:#
Create a new program, name the program name and click the Advanced button in the building block library, as follows:
1.7. Programming Guide#
Set XGO actions, a total of 12 actions, you can choose one action;
Get the servo angle of XGO’s limb joints and get the current power of XGO;
Set XGO single leg servo loading and all leg servos to debug mode;
Turn on or off the performance mode of XGO;
Turn on or off the XGO’s gyroscope;
Stop the XGO cycle reciprocating around the X, Y, Z axes;
Set the time and degree of XGO reciprocating rotation around X, Y, Z axes;
Set the time for XGO to pan or stop and move in the X, Y, Z directions;
Set the distance and time of the XGO leg raise;
Set the direction, speed and time of XGO’s rotational motion;
Set the toe direction of the XGO quadruped;
Set the servo rotation of the XGO quadruped joint and set the servo speed or step frequency;
Set the XGO movement or rotation and the corresponding speed;
set XGO body height;
At the same time, you can directly download the program below;
Note: If you want to run the numbered code program, you need to turn on the switch of Ring:bit, and also pay attention to whether the power of XGO is sufficient
