Build simple circuits on the Propeller Activity Board, and write Propeller C programs to interact with them. Blink lights, beep a speaker, measure voltage, and more.
Get started with C-language programming for the multicore Propeller microcontroller. The simple example programs use variables, do math, count loops, make decisions, and store information.
This abbreviated series of lessons (gleaned from Robotics with the Boe-Bot) was created to encourage Scouts who are interested enough in robotics to obtain their Merit Badge, but not enough to go “too deep, too quickly”.
