Kitronik :MOVE Motor for the BBC micro:bit(V1 & V2) (Kitronik:MOVE Motor)
Description:

Develop your coding skills with the Kitronik :MOVE Motor for micro:bit, a fun introduction to buggies and robotics.

The Kitronik :MOVE Motor for the BBC micro:bit provides a fun introduction to buggy robotics. More than just a programmable buggy, learning to use all of the included features will give the budding roboteer a solid grounding in robotics as a whole.

Learn about movement, how to utilise light and sound, obstacle detection and avoidance, and how to code :MOVE Motor to follow a line. When used in conjunction with the micro:bit's radio features, the possibilities are endless.

Attached to the chassis are two bi-directional DC motors with variable speed control. The wheels have rubber tyres and are a simple push-fit onto the motor shafts. Slot a BBC micro:bit into the edge connector and you are ready to code. There is no other assembly required and no tools required.

There are built-in battery holders for 4x AA batteries. This provides a regulated voltage supply to power the BBC micro:bit which is fed into the edge connector. There is also a power switch to conserve batteries when the buggy is not in use.

The micro:bit slots into the onboard edge connector. Code the micro:bit, plug it into the buggy, switch the power on, and then play.


CODE IT !

:MOVE Motor can be coded using the Microsoft MakeCode editor. Kitronik has produced a set of custom MakeCode blocks to simplify coding the completed buggy. The booklet that comes with the buggy contains more detailed instructions on using the blocks and writing code. If you are feeling more adventurous or relish a challenge, :MOVE Motor can also be coded with Python.

Also within the booklet (that comes inside the box), are some quick tutorials to get you started. There are also additional online tutorials and step by step guides for extra projects.

It's the same shape and size so should be already familiar to countless teachers and learners, and also compatible with the vast majority of add-on boards and accessories.

How does the BBC micro:bit work?

It's programmed with beginner friendly, drag and drop interface MakeCode with the option to progress into MicroPython later on, opening up even more programming possibilities!

It's packed with inputs, outputs, sensors and radio communication features that can be combined into and endless variety of projects.

Inputs and outputs: An important part of any computer system. As a very small computer, the BBC micro:bit has plenty of inputs and outputs to learn about and use.

LEDs: An LED, or light-emitting diode is an output device that gives off light. Your BBC micro:bit has a display of 25 LEDs for you to program.

Buttons: A very common input device. Your micro:bit has two "clicky" buttons and a touch sensitive button you can program, and a reset button.

Radio: A way of sending and receiving messages and BBC micro:bits can use radio waves to communicate with each other.

Accelerometer: A motion sensor that measures movement. The accelerometer in your BBC micro:bit detects when you tilt it left to right, backwards and forwards and up and down.

Compass: An input sensor that detects magnetic fields. Your BBC micro:bit has an inbuilt compass that can detect the direction in which it is facing.

Light sensor: An input device that measures light levels. Your BBC micro:bit uses the LEDs to sense the levels of light and lets you program your micro:bit as a light sensor.

Temperature sensor: An input device that measures temperature. Your BBC micro:bit has a temperature sensor inside the processor which can give you an approximation of the air temperature.

Pins: On the bottom edge of your BBC micro:bit there are 25 gold strips, called pins. These pins allow you to really get creative. You can create circuits, connect external things like buzzers and motors and make your own fun projects.

Sound: Your BBC micro:bit can be programmed to make a wide variety of sounds - from single notes, tones and beats to your own musical compositions.

Requires:

  • microB USB Cable for programming
  • Computer/laptop with Internet access

Each of the downloads are zip files, which will need to be unzipped to access the code examples. We have included two versions for each python experiment, a HEX file and a PY file.

MakeCode Instructions:

Connect the micro:bit to a spare USB port on your computer. The micro:bit will show up as a removable disk drive in File Explorer (Windows). Once unzipped, the individual MakeCode files can be dragged and dropped onto the micro:bit in File Explorer (Windows). An orange light will begin to flash on the rear side of the micro:bit, once the flashing stops the transfer is complete and the program can be run. Alternatively, the files can be dragged and dropped directly into the MakeCode editor.

 

Python Instructions:

Connect the micro:bit to your computer in the same way as outlined above. The HEX versions can be dragged and dropped onto the micro:bit in the same was a MakeCode HEX files.
