LEGO Wedo tilt sensor experiment

For this tilt sensor experiment, we need to add a START block followed by a DISPLAY BLOCK (alphanumeric) with a TILT SENSOR INPUT. Then add a REPEAT block to make the DISPLAY BLOCK to keep checking for input from the TILT SENSOR INPUT block (see screenshot below):

Observe the ALPHANUMERIC DISPLAY window as you tilt the sensor from horizontal to tilt left, then tilt right, from horizontal to tilt upward then tilt downward. You will see the display window changes from zero to zero to 4 then 8 as we tilt the sensor from tilt left then tilt right. We will also observe the display window changes from zero to 2 then 10 as we tilt from horizontal to upward then downward.

Observe the changes in the video below:



  1. I just found your blog and happy that I did.I have a 6 year old who just got into the robotics club in her school. She is the youngest and other kids are way advanced than her. So she doesnt have a basic foundation in robotics. I was hoping if you could write about the basics, how to start learning robotics for a young child. Can you point me to some resource where she can get the abc of this. Me and her dad both have electronics background and are very much interested in this. Please help.

  2. Hi Raje,

    Thanks for leaving a comment in my post. Your daughter is same age as my 2 grandchildren and looks like they should be able to get along very well together. Yes I intend to publish posts about the basic. Perhaps you can give me some suggestions.
