Questions for the new mBot 2


#1

The new mBot 2 sounds very interesting.

I have been working intensively with the mBot1 and mBlock3 since the beginning of the year. I have published my experiences and results on a website:

In particular, there are some brain games that require the use of the TFT LED screen and the IR remote control.

Hence my questions about technical details:

  1. Can the Makeblock TFT-LCD display be controlled at the CyberPi?

  2. Can the IR remote control of the mBot 1 be used? If not: What input options does the mBot 2 offer for numerical values?

All of this, of course, in upload mode, i.e. for Python

Hello Phg1, here are the answers to your questions:

  1. Can the Makeblock TFT-LCD display be controlled at the CyberPi?
    ------No. We haven’t developed any block for RJ25 TFT-LCD by now

  2. Can the IR remote control of the mBot 1 be used? If not: What input options does the mBot 2 offer for numerical values?
    ------IR remote control on mBot 1 cannot be used on mBot 2 cause there’s no IR module on mBot 2. However, mBot 2 comes with more ways to communicate with different devices, such like mesh LAN network, LAN broadcast, Bluetooth, IoT, etc. In one word, with mBot 2, you will no more need for IR communication any more.
