Drive your Robot

Drive Your Robot!

  • Put your robot down on the floor, and move its switch to position 2 to power the servos.
  • Hold your tilt controller board flat in front of you, facing so that so that the 9 V battery is on the left.
  • Tilt the board forward and backward, so the robot rolls forward then backward.
  • Try making the robot turn while driving, by tilting the board forward-right, backward-left, and so forth.

If you made two tilt-controlled SumoBot robots, it's battle time.  Have fun!

If your robot starts beeping in the middle of tilt control, it might mean either your tilt controller's or robot's batteries are running low.
