Case 08: Auto Pick-up Device


  • In the normal pick-up of the nut fruits, we usually use a stick to chop the branches to get the mature fruits, which could do a bad harm to the leaves and branches,thus, we can make an auto pick-up device by shaking the trunk of the tree.


  • Shake the trunk of the tree to get the fruits.


Hardware Connection

Connect the servo to P1 on IoT:bit.

Software Programming

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

For programming, we need to add a package: click "Extensions" at the bottom of the MakeCode drawer and search with "servo" in the dialogue box to download it.

Notice: If you met a tip indicating that some codebases would be deleted due to incompatibility, you may continue as the tips say or create a new project in the menu.


Set the servo to drive to 90°, pause for 200ms, then set it to drive to 0° and pause another 200ms.



  • Shake the trunk via the servo to pick up the fruits.
