The standard distance sensor allows Edbot to react with its environment.
It can be set to different distances, and used to trigger other commands.

Based on the the best-selling Robotis Mini, Edbot speaks the most popular programming languages taught in schools. Edbot is proud to be a finalist for the BETT Awards 2017 as ICT Innovator of the Year.
Whether you use block languages like Scratch or text-based languages such as Python, Edbot brings computational thinking to life, and enlivens any classroom or code club.
Edbot’s software runs over your network. This means that unlike many other robots, a single Edbot can be shared by multiple students. The connection to Edbot is made over Bluetooth, and because the control software is networked, only one Bluetooth-equipped PC is required per class. The teacher selects which PC is assigned control of the Edbot. Students take it in turns to run their code.
Edbot Plays Football in School
We are often asked how many Edbots are required for a class. It is possible to use one Edbot for classes up to 30 students. The videos above were shot in a class of 25. With more Edbots, students don’t have to wait as long for their turn and you can play games such as football, but one device is still adequate.
