In this section we are going to have a closer look at PICAXE robots. Why PICAXE robots? As already explained previously PICAXE provides a simple interface to accomplish advanced programming, making it easier for anybody to learn the techniques.
The programming of the PICAXE BOT120 microbot will be covered under this topic. The PICAXE BOT120 robot is an inexpensive little robot to start learning on without having to spend a lot of money.
In the following exercises we are going to cover the basic functions of this little robot and how to program it. The code examples will be available to download if you want to try it on your own robot. If you are close enough you can attend one of the workshops and have fun with your friends and you don’t have to buy your own robot. You can use one of the TechnologyTutor’s robots.
