Microbit SmartCar – Infrared Red Remote Control

Introduction IR, or infrared, communication is a common, inexpensive, and easy to use wireless communication technology. IR light is very similar to visible light, except that it has a slightlty longer wavelength. This means IR is undetectable to the human eye – perfect for wireless communication. For example, when you hit a button on your […]

Microbit SmartCar – Obstacle Avoidance

Introduction to Obstacle Avoidance Robot Car An Obstacle Avoiding Robot is a type of autonomous mobile robot that avoids collision with unexpected obstacles. In this project, an Obstacle Avoiding Robot is designed. It is an Microbit based robot that uses Ultrasonic range finder sensors to avoid collisions. Uses Obstacle avoiding robots can be used in almost all mobile robot navigation systems. They can be used […]
