Case 02: Speed Up Gradually


  • In case 01, we can find the Cutebot moves too fast to go steadily(the universal wheel goes off the ground) at the beginning.
  • We will learn to gradually speed up the car for a steady move at the beginning in this case.


Software Platform

MicroSoft makecode


Step 1

  • Click the "Advanced" to see more choices in the MakeCode drawer.

  • A codebase is required for Cutebot programming, click “Add Package” at the bottom of the drawer, search Cutebot in the dialogue box and download it.

Note: If you met a tip indicating incompatibility of the codebase, you can continue with the tips or build a new project there.

Step 2

  • Choose "show icon" in the On startbrick.
  • Set the speed variable to 0 which means the on start speed is 0.

Step 3

  • Drag setting speed bricks for left and right wheel and set the value as speed in "forever" brick, then add one to speed.
  • If speed is 100 which is the maximum speed, set speed to 0 and restart it.
