I can't watch any kind of TV documentary now a days. They can't just tell you the story, explain the history or idea. Oh no, they have to repeat things a dozen times in quick succession. Infuriating.
Demo Remote Control of Parallax SumoBot example
1 August 2017
All of the transmit/receive code is in one project to demonstrate the power of the simulator. After setting up the transmitter, the simulated receiver will appear and can be setup. (Ignore the servos on the simulated transmitter)
Basic Stamp is held in reset (output of reset button wired to VSS - leg is the one closet to the .com in www.parallax.com)
Micro:bit is soldered to single row standard header and inserted into the SumoBot's breadboard
Power to Micro:bit is generated from VDD supply (I used LP2950-3.3)
P0 is connected to the right servo on P12
P1 is connected to the left servo on P13
After micro:bit boot
Pressing B toggles between transmit and receive mode (flashing T or R)
Pressing A advances to channel selection mode
Pressing B increments channel number (allows simultaneous operation of multiple transmitter/receiver pairs)
Pressing A commences operation (solid T or R indicates operating mode)
Tilt the micro:bit transmitter to operate the remote SumoBot. Hopefully the controls are intuitive.
Pressing B on transmitter stops operation. Press B again to resume.
Receiver will timeout and stop if it doesn't receive a packet at least once a second
Use the reset button to reconfigure the device
