Cautions:

  • MoonBot is a precise robotic instrument and one should not twist its servos when powered on to avoid being damaged.
  • Always double check your cable connections before powering on to avoid accidental or unexpected movement.

Running the Demo Program

There is a pre-loaded program in the MoonBot controller for you to test if everyting is working. The program will recognize the "Traffic sign cards" and move based on the card instructions. It will run on all three official robot forms.

To run the demo program, follow these steps:

  1. Turn the power button on.
  2. Press the "A" button on the Main Controller. The vision sensor should start blinking red lights.
