2.2. Samples#


Sample 1: Drive the car at a full speed.#

from microbit import *
from TPBot import *

tp = TPBOT()
tp.set_motors_speed(100,100)

Result#

The speed of the left and right wheels is at 100, the car moves forward at the full speed.

Sample 2: Turn the headlights on in random colors#

from microbit import *
from TPBot import *
import random

tp = TPBOT()

while True:
    R = random.randint(0,255);
    G = random.randint(0,255);
    B = random.randint(0,255);
    tp.set_car_light(R,G,B)
    sleep(500)

Result#

The headlights light up in different colours at random.

Sample 3: Obstacles avoidance#

from microbit import *
from TPBot import *

tp = TPBOT()
while True:
    i = tp.get_distance(0)
    if i>3 and i<30:
        tp.set_motors_speed(-50, 50)
        sleep(500)
    else:
        tp.set_motors_speed(50, 50)

Result#

The TPBot turns its direction once it detects any obstacle ahead of it.

Result#

The TPBot drives along with the black line.

Sample 5: Control the servo#

from microbit import *
from TPBot import *

tp = TPBOT()
while True:
    tp.set_servo(1,180)
    sleep(1000)
    tp.set_servo(1,0)
    sleep(1000)

Result#

  • The servo connecting to S1 continues driving back and forth.
