Robobloq Multi-touch Sensor Overview

The multi-touch sensor has many touch sensors which will detect the status when the points are touched, the lights will be on when touching the points. At the same time, you can use the alligator clip or the wire to extract the touching points from the sensors, For example, extract the touching points to the fruits, this will expand the utility of the sensors.

The sensor will adjust the threshold value intellectually, it will reset the threshold value when turning off the electricity to make sure it will detect the touching action sensitively when connecting the points to the electrically conductive materials. For example, it will have an effect like the distance touching when the touching sensitive value is high.

Ⅲ.Characteristics

Principles:

It uses the electric capacity to detect, there is the original electric capacity Cp between the touching points and the earth. When the body or other conductors get close to or touch the multi-touch points, The equivalent electric capacity which between touching points and earth will change correspondingly compared to the original electric capacity, and the MCU will detect the points which be touched. Because the touching judgement is based on the detection of electric capacity changes. So it will detect when the sensor not be touched.

a) The light sensor supports Arduino IDE programming and provides runtime libraries to simplify programming.

b) The sensor is available for Robobloq-APP and MyQode-PC GUI operating based on scratch, suitable for all ages.

c) It can be used for installation with M4 holes, compatible with Robobloq metal-related robots and Lego blocks.

d) Having an RJ11 interface makes it convenient to connect to any black port on the Q-mind series motherboards. (Both Q-mind and Q-mind plus included)

e) After the robot successfully connects to the PC, the sensor name will pop out automatically, and the sensor name can be seen in the console on the APP side.

f) It supplies digital and analogue export ports

Ⅳ. Multi-touch Sensor Method of use

a) Assembly

It has 4 mounting holes. When setting up, kindly pay attention to get metal parts away with components on the circuit board in case that component damage or short circuit happens.

b) Connection

The black RJ11 interface connected to Qmind and Qmind plus can help the sensor get power and communication to the motherboard.

After the connection is completed, the name of the connected module will pop up on the PC side, and the corresponding port can also be checked in the APP console.

After the connection is completed, the name of the connected module will pop up on the PC end.

4. What kind of STEM kits and robots can I buy on your site?

All of the toys that are sold on our site are educational toys and are meant to support STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Education. As students learn more about coding they understand more about the basics of the natural, social and cultural environment around them. We offer a wide range of products for both the home and for schools as well.

 

5. What Coding Language do Robots Use?

Our wide range of robots can be programmed with easy drag-and-drop blocks or text-based code, but our programmable robots can also introduce kids to a variety of coding languages including C, C++, Python, Ruby, and OVAL, among others.

With Sphero, Wonder Workshop, Ohbot, Ozobot and other brand apps, kids can code in three different ways:

Draw Programming: This simpler method of programming is intended for younger kids and is simply named "Draw". Users draw lines to program their robot and can modify the speed and color. 

Block Programming: Intermediate coders can utilize the familiar block-based drag-and-drop interface. Pre-programmed blocks allow for a wide variety of actions and variables. 

Text Programming: A more advanced method where users can program with a text editor to write custom syntax. All text coding is done using JavaScript. 

If you have any questions, you can reach out to the Robocube team directly at info@robocube.co.uk.

 

6. How is 1:1 Coding and Dash’s Neighbourhood adding value?

Coding literacy is one of those essential skills that is becoming more and more necessary in today’s fast paced world. This has become even more so with the increase in distance learning due to the global pandemic and measures around it. With Dash’s Neighbourhood students can learn to program their favourite robot online in a 3D environment using the simple Blockly drag-and-drop programming language and practice with the simulator at home. Teachers have a Class Connect dashboard for added ease and confidence. This way kids can still enjoy group activities with the real robot in the classroom while at the same time having the option to iterate, test and debug on their own with the Blockly app. 

 

7. What Programmable Robots ROBOCUBE offers?

Our robots are app-enabled robots that you control with your smartphone, tablet, or computer. Using apps, you can play, customize, or create your own programs or games. You can also program your robots to add new abilities and expand its capabilities. 

Our wide range of robots take many shapes. Robotic balls - like the Sphero BOLT, Sphero Mini - let users roll around, master tricks, and code.

Sphero’s newest programmable robot, RVR, is an all-terrain robot designed for advanced users. Code with it, build on it, and hack the robot of your dreams — then take it anywhere.

Ohbot Robotic AI Head 'sense' spoken words and recognise faces and movements.

Clicbot listen, they think, and even react. ClicBot's personality is contagious, and the playful design makes them even more lovable with 1000+ different robots you can build with one kit.
