Pitbot Battery & Sensor Setup
Preparing The infrastructure for running Arduino code — LEGO Episode #28
Hi, Here we will see some pre-code arrangement to the final Pitbot code. Using Imax B6 will be our focus. Welcome!
The first thing is the care of the batteries. For the two bats that I’ll use in Pitbot:
Warning:Don’t overuse your LiPo battery until less than 11.1V or LiIo battery less than 7.4v (see tech notes below:)
Now another source of the problem is the number of the pins that the MOSTER MOTOR SHIELD will use in Arduino board:
So for our future implementation, we will haven’t count on these pins already used by Monster Shield.
As for the sensor in the front of the Pitbot, I will reformat it, and put another ultra-sound sensor.
But this will be the work for another post…
