💜 How to define a robot?
Generally, robots are automated devices with certain amount of computing power. Same as living creatures, robots have their own “organs”:
🔸 The brain:
micro:bit acts as the brain. With its own logical system, the board can process the information and send out commands correspondingly.
🔸 The sensory system:
Max:Bot is attached with sensors of different functions, thus we get the sensory system. For instance, a grayscale sensor and a collision sensor can be used as the eye and the hand to receive outside information.
🔸 The executive system:
This system can change our environment or send out messages to the outside world through gestures, languages, expressions, etc. LED strips and digital speaker modules can be connected to Max:Bot to send out massages. Additionally, there is an LED panel with 25 LEDS on the micro:bit and they can be used to display messages and patterns.
