Pi Supply bit:buggy Project 01 – Full speed ahead
In this project we are going to create a simple program to show you the basics of how the bit:buggy works, as well as familiarising yourself with the bit:buggy code extensions and Microsoft Make Code. In this project we will move the bit:buggy forward and then backwards.
Connect your hardware
If you haven’t done so already, connect the left servo wheel to P1 and the right servo wheel to P2.
Step 1 – Snap in place the block “go straight at full speed” into the “On start” block. The port number is the actual servo connection port.
Step 2 – Snap into place the “go straight at full speed” into the block “on button A pressed”.
Step 3 – Snap into place the “reverse at full speed” into the block “on button B pressed”.
Step 4 – Upload your code to the bit:buggy.
Here is the program link – https://makecode.microbit.org/_LfpWLCDW1Vf4
When button A is pressed, the car will go straight at full speed.
When button B is pressed, the car will reverse at full speed.
Taking it further
How can you make the bit:buggy stop when both buttons are pressed?
