from microbit import * from AILens import * from TPBot import * tp = TPBOT() ai = AILENS() # Set the function of AI Lens in balls recognition ai.switch_function(Ball) while True: # Get an image ai.get_image() buff = ai.get_ball_data() # "buff" means the Y coordinates data of the ball detected in AI lens if (buff > 80): # "buff" means the X coordinates data of the ball detected in AI lens if (buff< 80): tp.set_motors_speed(-30,0) elif (buff > 144): tp.set_motors_speed(0,-30) else: tp.set_motors_speed(25,25) else: tp.set_motors_speed(0,0)
The TPBot moves with the ball and it stops while walking in the right front of the ball.
