KIBO Cards – Introducing Sensors
Posted On January 16, 2016
KIBO senses its environment! Sensors can see and hear things in the world around them, just like your own eyes and ears. Learn more about the Sound Sensor, Distance Sensor and Light Sensor.
KIBO’s Sound Sensor can hear sounds, just like your ears can. WAIT FOR CLAP tells KIBO to stop until the sound sensor hears a noise.
KIBO uses the Distance Sensor to see how near or far KIBO is from other objects. If KIBO is close to an object, the Distance Sensor tells KIBO it is “near.” If KIBO is not close to an object, the Distance Sensor tells KIBO it is “far.”
KIBO’s Light Sensor can detect bright lights and very dark places. If a flashlight is shining on KIBO, the Light Sensor will tell KIBO it is “LIGHT.” If it goes into a dark place, the Light Sensor will tell KIBO it is “DARK.”
