Project - the alpha 'pi'rex


#1

just thought I’d introduce my next project, the alpha 'pi’rex robot.
just need to program him now!alph 'pi'rex


#2

That’s awesome! Did you use the NXT-2.0 kit? This would be something we haven’t even touched on: humanoid robots. We definitely need to get one in our projects section!


#3

well, its been some time…but my students are taking this project on… I only got as far as making him start to move.

Do you have any help for using the sound sensor? I am unable to find any on the site?


#4

Hey Alisone, I don’t think we’ve done a module or example for the sound sensor yet. Do you have the older orange version?


#5

its the one you can see in his hand in the photo…

Hey Alisone, the microphone is an analog sensor. I think you should be able to read it using the example here: https://github.com/DexterInd/BrickPi_Python/blob/master/Sensor_Examples/General-Analog_Sensor_Test.py

It’s called “General-Analog_Sensor_Test.py”

The microphone is an analog sensor and should show you a level between 0 and 1023 I think.
