As part of the show and tell session the Bodgers group held a Robot Wars Style event. We used the two wheeled robots from last year controlled by Nintendo Wii Remotes.
If you want to build your own two wheeled robot you can check out my notes from last year here.
To control the robots using the Wiimote I followed Matt Hawkins Wiimote tutorial from here (If you have a Raspberry Pi 3 you can skip step 2 as Bluetooth is already working. Don’t forget step 3 install Python Cwiid). I then added the code to control the robot using GPIO Zero, you can get my code wii_robot.py here.
Happy Christmas everybody.
