Non-GCSE – Lesson 6 – Time to shine!

Curriculum KS4 Unit Lesson

By now, learners should be very familiar with the use of GPIO pins on Raspberry Pi Pico. It is time for them to add some lights to the buggy. In this lesson, learners have to turn the lights on at certain times, depending on the inputs to the sensors fitted to the buggy. For instance, the headlights switch on before the buggy moves off, the buggy performs a movement sequence with brake lights on when it is at a standstill, and finally all lights turn off when the buggy has finished its sequence.
