mBot provides three preset modes:
Before playing with these three modes, you may need to update the factory firmware for mBot.
The infrared remote control mode is the default mode, and you can use the infrared remote controller or the on-board button to switch between the modes.
How do I know which mode mBot is running in?
The color of the LED on the main board indicates the mode.
White: infrared remote control mode
Green: obstacle avoidance mode
Blue: line following mode
Obstacle avoidance mode
In obstacle avoidance mode, mBot moves and avoids obstacles autonomously.
Infrared remote control mode
A special infrared remote controller is included in the package. You can use the remote control to control mBot, such as its speed and direction.
Line following mode
