Configuring the Distance Sensor

Before you can use your Distance Sensor you must configure it to your Robot. This is done using the app, you are just naming the Add-on in the app.

When you are connected to your Marty from the Marty the Robot v2 app, select Configure then Add-ons to get to the Add-on configuration screen.

Name the add-on “DistanceSensor”. Click “Update Name”. NOTE the capital letters on Distance and Sensor and no space between the words; if the Add-on isn't named exactly, then MartyBlocks won't be able to read it.
