I use Microbits in tech clubs and wanted a simple remote controlled robot that was easy enough for children to build and code. This project uses two Microbits, one as the controller and one to drive the motors. The robot is controlled by tilting the Microbit controller, it broadcasts the value of the x and y orientation using the accelerometer. They communicate over the onboard Bluetooth (‘Radio’ in the PXT editor) To keep things simple it uses the Kitronik motor driver board and their own block to drive the motors. It also uses two micro metal gear motors, 3d printed wheels and an old CD as a chassis.”
