Introduction to GoPiGo
Using GoPiGo and Raspberry Pi, we built a circuit that blinks LED and runs the motor for Challenge 1. For Challenge 2, we plugged in button sensor to run the motor when the button is pressed.
Simple circuit with 220 ohm resistor and LED was built on breadboard. The I/O pin (GPIO 17) and ground pin from GoPiGo were connected to each respective pins on the breadboard. The code makes the LED blink 5 times.
To run the motor, we connected GoPiGo motor to the motor pins on the board.
With GoPiGo motor still connected from Challenge 1, we also connected the button sensor onto analog/digital pin 1. Using the code snippet provided on the IDE, we wrote a code that runs the motor when the button is pressed.
