PiDojo- Controlling A Robot From The Keyboard Using Pygame

We had another enjoyable session this week, we especially enjoyed the drone demo by Chris Tierney.

We began our ownsession by looking at using input from our keyboard with Pygame to control our robot. We then returned to last week’s challenge, programming our robot to follow a defined path. We continued to have issues with the robots going off in arcs rather than straight line so we started to build corrections into the code. We will continue with this next week and we will learn to use functions to tell our robots what distance we want them to travel or the angle we want them to turn instead of using times to control them.

Here are my notes from today pygame robot and our code is available here

For more on Pygame there’s a very good tutorial here
