This project lets you control a micro:bit Maqueen robot using OctoStudio running on a smartphone. Thanks for the effort and inspiration Wenjie!
To start the project, collect the parts.
|OR a compatible micro device (e.g., ESP32)
a robot kit, such as DF Robot Maqueen (Lite) with a compatible microcontroller board (e.g., micro:bit v2)
a smartphone (iOS or Android) with the OctoStudio app installed
a laptop (Windows, Mac, Chromebook, Linux) running the MicroBlocks IDE
The robot script assumes the following beamed shapes correspond to the five robot commands:
