This week we created our own folders on our Raspberry Pi3s, this will allow us to each find our own code and keep working on it.
We finished off the code for our own robot functions which we will use to navigate an obstacle course next week. The finished code is available on Dropbox here. These are my slides from Saturday finished-functions.
After we are finished with the obstacle course we will look at controlling our robot from our keyboard. I will use Pygame to do this and as Pygame is used for Graphical applications such as games and GUIs we will have to use VNC to connect to our Pi3s. Pygame will also allow us to use a webcam to capture video so if you have an old USB webcam please bring it in.
CoderDojo and Liberty Global are due to launch the Future Maker Awards this week FAQ here and more information here scroll down to see how one of our Bodgers uses his super power. I’ll have more information next Saturday after the launch.
See you then.
