Lighting with Tiny bit Micro:bit Robot Tutorial 3.3 RGB light exchange lighting


1-1.The position of the LED lights in the robot car

1-2.Learn about the principle of LED

Programming method:

Mode 1 online programming: First, we need to connect the micro:bit to the computer by USB cable. The computer will pop up a USB flash drive and click on the URL in the USB flash drive: to enter the programming interface. Add the Yahboom package: to program.

Mode 2 offline programming: We need to open the offline programming software. After the installation is complete, enter the programming interface, click【New Project】, add Yahboom package:, you can program.

In the picture shown below, the two lights with the red wire frame are the RGB Searching lights on the Tiny-bit.

Principle:  LED light (red, green, blue) are packaged in the LED module. We can mix different colors(256*256*256) by controlling the brightness of the three LEDs.

2.Learning goal

2-1.Learn how to use RGB Searching lights graphically program building blocks

2-2.In this lesson, we will learn to light up  red RGB Searching lights on the Tiny-bit robot.

3.Search for block

The following is the location of the building blocks required for this programming

4.Combine block

The summary program is shown below:


5.Experimental phenomena 

After the program is downloaded, we can see that  micro:bit board will display a heart pattern on the dot matrix.  And the color of all RGB Searching lights is changed Red -> Green -> Blue -> White -> Cyan -> Pinkish -> Yellow every 1 seconds. 

The code of the experiment: 3.RGB light exchange lighting.rar
