Robot Kit for Micro:bit Tutorial: First Trial

1.Download APP

Android users please use the browser to scan the following QR code to download and install or download the Android Remote APP provided by us directly in the download area;

Apple users should use the camera to scan the QR code to enter the App Store to download and install or search for "Mbit" in the App Store or search for "Yahboom" to find "Mbit".

After downloading the Bluetooth remote control APP, we have to install it.

(Note: If the phone prompts you to obtain location rights during installation, you need to click to agree to get location permissions.)

2.Download code

Use the data cable to connect the micro:bit board to the your computer. At this point we can see a micro:bit drive letter in the computer.

Download the Bluetooth Remote Control code】 in the download area of this product, and then drag or drop the hex directly or send it to the micro:bi drive letter.

! Note: We provide two hex files,

microbit-Buletooth_control.hex without ultrasonic display function,

The microbit-Bluetooth_control_with_Ultrasonic.hex is shown with an ultrasound display.

It is recommended that you use the former (without ultrasound display, the control is smoother)

Download code: microbit-Bluetooth_control.rar
