Assemble the hardware

Step 1

  • Attach the micro:bit to the Ring:bit expansion board using the short flat head screws.

Step 2

  • Use the longer flat head screws to fasten the seven-hole beam to the corresponding screw holes on the XGO.

Step 3

  • Mount the Ring:bit expansion board with the micro:bit installed on the seven-hole beam using the long pins.

Step 4

  • Connect the DuPont cable reserved by XGO to the corresponding port of the Ring:bit, among which the black DuPont cable is connected to the G port, and the yellow DuPont cable and the blue DuPont cable are connected to the No. 1 and No. 2 ports. Select the appropriate port number.

Step 5

  • Connect your computer to the micro:bit with a USB cable:

Start Program

The programming of XGO is done on the Makecode platform; the Makecode platform can use graphical programming, as well as python code programming and JavaScript code programming;

Add XGO extension library

The steps are as follows:

  • Create a new program, name the program name and click the Advanced button in the building block library, as follows:

Programming Guide

Initialize XGO

Set XGO actions, a total of 12 actions, you can choose one action;

Get the servo angle of XGO's limb joints and get the current power of XGO;

Set XGO single leg servo loading and all leg servos to debug mode;

Turn on or off the performance mode of XGO;

Turn on or off the XGO's gyroscope;

Stop the XGO cycle reciprocating around the X, Y, Z axes;

Set the time and degree of XGO reciprocating rotation around X, Y, Z axes;

Set the time for XGO to pan or stop and move in the X, Y, Z directions;

Set the distance and time of the XGO leg raise;

Set the direction, speed and time of XGO's rotational motion;

Set the toe direction of the XGO quadruped;

Set the servo rotation of the XGO quadruped joint and set the servo speed or step frequency;

Set the XGO movement or rotation and the corresponding speed;

set XGO body height;
