Bluetooth en mBot

March 10, 2016 0 Opmerkingen

When you have bought the mBot with bluetooth, you have an ideal combination with an iPad, tablet and/or mobile phone. You can always buy a bluetooth module option later and convert your mBot to a bluetooth mBot.

  • Connecting to your PC (Mac OSX) or Windows only works with the USB cable.

Now the question will arise; how do you connect your mobile device to the bluetooth ?

The standard pairing option does not seem to work on iPhone and/or iPad. 

Solution:

1) Install mBlock on your Windows or OSX (Apple) PC. Make sure you download the latest version. See our Blog post on the topics "Install the right drivers (USB)" and "First check your firmware version".

You will not see the right serial port unless you connect the mBot with the USB cable AND have mBot power on.

2) Check and install the right new firmware. Make sure you select the mBot device.

3) Download the mBot app on your phone, or the mBlockly app on your iPad/tablet. In the mBot app click on the connection button on top, and select your device and connect. In the mBlockly app the app will start searching for your device and you can connect. In both instances make sure bluetooth is on on your iPad/tablet and mobile phone, and make sure the mBoth is on.
