Pi Supply bit:buggy Project 09 – Remote control by accelerometer

We have already showed you how to use one micro:bit to control another and also use the built-in accelerometer to control aspects of the bit:buggy. Now in this project we are going to combine the two to remote control the bit:buggy using the accelerometer.

Connect your hardware

If you haven’t done so already, connect the left servo wheel to P1 and the right servo wheel to P2.

The bit:buggy car will move as direction of the gyroscope and its speed will as the angle of inclination of the gyroscope.
