Wireless mBot Car Racing On Figure 8 Track - Part 2: Before mBlock ProgrammingTuesday, November 29, 2016
Another great thing about the mBot is that the 2.4G wireless adapter can be replaced with a Bluetooth adapter so you can control the mBot via Bluetooth smartphone. The mBot is very intuitive to assemble and you do get an instruction manual with illustration pictures showing you in detail how the mBot is put together and where each wire goes.
The mBot comes with its own ultrasonic sensor though you can use an ultrasonic 4-pin sensor like the Ranger V2.0 together with the mBot ultrasonic sensor.
Here are the first steps before you start programming with mBlock:
1) Download the mBlock software from http://www.mblock.cc/ and install it on your PC or laptop.
2) Install the Arduino Driver so that your PC can communicate with the mBot. Go to Connect->Install Arduino Driver
4. Go to Boards->mBot (mCore). If you are using the mBot Version 1.1 then the board to select is the mCore.
