This adaptor enables you to fit the Elecfreaks Smart AI Lens to the Bit:Bot XL and use it to direct the movement of the robot!
Note: Smart AI Lens and Bit:Bot XL are not included!
In Makecode, You can use the Smart Lens extension and the BitBot extension at the same time to very easily detect objects and change the direction of the robot's behaviour however you want. See the image of a very simple block of code that will turn the BitBot left or right depending on which object it recognises.
This adaptor can be used to mount the camera vertically (so the camera looks forwards), or horizontally (so the camera looks downwards). Mounting the camera to look downwards allows it to be used as a very sophisticated line following robot - see the Elecfreaks examples of line following.
