Guide For Coding Indicators On The :MOVE mini

With the nights beginning to get darker we need to ensure the :MOVE mini can continue to explore its surroundings by coding some automatic headlights, so that no matter what time of day or the ambient light levels, :MOVE mini can still find its way.

You can find a link to... Read more
