Description

Robit is a motherboard of a smart car based on micro:bit. It is compatible with MBOT. Except for the integration of the simple and convenient RJ25 connector, motor connector, and sensor on MBOT, we have extended 4 DC motor connectors, and 2 stepping motor connectors(same with 4 DC motor connectors), 8 PWM signal output connectors on this board. You can use it to drive PWM signal driving devices like a servo. It has 8 G-5V-S digital signal connectors(for connecting with OCTOPUS electric bricks). Robit can realize all the current basic functions of MBOT. Besides, you can extend its usage with more sensors, motors, servos, stepping motors, and so on.

Details

RJ25 Connector

Robit has 4 RJ25 connectors. Each RJ25 connector has 6 touch points. These points respond to power, 2 IO ports, and IIC ports separately. It is compatible with some sensors on mBOT.

GVS Standard Electric Brick Connector

Except leading out to the RJ25 connector, the IO port on micro:bit also leads out with the format of GVS. It supports 5V components. Besides, P1/P2/P3/P4 support 5V analog input sensors.

GVS Standard Servo Connector: S0~S7

You can connect 8 servos at most. This connector leads out from the chip PCA9685 and extends from the IIC connector on micro:bit instead of normal I/O ports.

DC Motor Connector: M1~M4

It allows you to connect 4 DC motors (max) at the same time. This connector leads out from the chip PCA9685 and extends from the IIC connector on micro:bit instead of normal I/O ports.

Stepping Motor Connector: STEP 1 & STEP 2

It enables you to connect 2 stepping motors(28BYJ-48-5V) at most.

Buzzer

Pair text with an image to focus on your chosen product, collection, or blog post. Add details on availability, style, or even provide a review.

Light Sensor

The light sensor on board is connected to the P10 port on micro:bit.

Infrared Emitting Diode

This infrared emitting diode is connected to the P6 port on micro:bit.

Infrared Receiving Diode

This infrared receiving diode is connected to the P8 port on micro:bit.

Rainbow LED

Two rainbows LED beads are connected to the P12 port on micro:bit.

DC Power Connector

DC power connector supports 3.7V~4.2V DC power. It is usually connected to a battery holder with 4 AAA batteries.

Li-battery Connector

Li-battery connector supports 3.7V~4.2V li-battery.

Li-battery Indicator

This indicator tells you battery power information. It is in blinking status. Blink once means 1 grid of power. And the full power has 4 grids. That means it will blink 4 times when the battery power is full.

USB Connector

This connector is only used to charge the li-battery. It doesn't support data transmission and its charging current is 500mA.

Quick Start

Hardware Connection
Fix robit onto mbot car.
Connect left motor to M1 port and right motor to M2 port.
Once completed, it looks like the following picture showed.

 

Programming

Click to open makecode, search the keyword "robit" and add robit package.


 

Write your code to make the car forever move forth and back for 3 seconds respectively. Here's the code:

You can see the whole program from the link
Or you can download it from the page below.

Results

We can see our robit car moves forward for 3 seconds, and then backward for 3 seconds. This round-trip movement is repeated forever.
