Software to simulate the Mbot robot " mBot and mBlock are trademarks of MakeBlock"
The mBot simulator is a great addon for robotic discovery activities around this robot.
Allowing realistic simulation in a physical environment, this simulator makes it possible to identify and test the elements of the mBot** robot: motors, sensors, leds.
The simulated robot can be programmed with the mBlock** software to develop behaviors. This is the same programming software for real robot. These developed programs can also be used both ways with a real robot and a virtual robot.
The application you need:
Ease of installation and use
Another key point is the simplicity to install and to use. To install on a network, a simple sharing or a simple duplication of the installation directory is sufficient. The launch of the mBlock** software is automatic, the two windows: mBlock** and the simulator are automatically arranged on the screen to optimize the workspace and allow the user to concentrate on the essentials.
The use of the simulator makes it possible to get rid of parasitic operating constraints such as discharged batteries or out of order hardware degrading teachers work.
The simulation phase before using a real robot allows the student to make the link between virtual and real and thus to fix the differences between these two modes: ability to easily perform a large number of simulation tests for example .
This mixed usage: need of a real experiment and simulation benefit are thus clearly exposed to the learner.
The mBot** simulator also incorporates "challenges" allowing students to exercise their creativity as a behavioral developer in a motivating and competitive environment, so the time taken to complete each challenge as well as the evolution to get there are displayed. This is undeniably a motivating competitive attraction for each learner
Why choose mBot simulator for your students?
