10. Case 09: Invading Detection Device#

10.1. Introduction#

This is an intrusion detection device. When the ultrasonic sensor detects that someone is approaching, it will automatically turn on a red light and alarm through the buzzer on the micro:bit. If the ultrasonic sensor does not detect anyone, it will automatically turn on green light.

Notice: If you met a tip indicating that some codebases would be deleted due to incompatibility, you may continue as the tips say or create a new project in the menu.

Step 2#

Code as below:#
