Circuit Practice

It's tempting to dive right into robot navigation.  We understand! But, as with any vehicle, it's wise to get familiar with the controls before attempting to drive. 

In this section you will:

  • Take a look at your Propeller Activity Board's features
  • Take a closer look at the power switch and breadboard
  • Try blinking the built-in light-emitting diodes
  • Add a piezo speaker to your board and make it beep

 


Know your Board

Take a quick tour  of the Propeller Activity Board (original or WX version) to get acquainted (or re-acquainted) with its feautres.  You've already connected cables to the servo ports and have plugged the battery pack into the power jack.  You've been programming it a bit already, so you have been using the USB port. 

  • Check the label on your board, and read more about its features below.
