  1. Indicator light

    Indicator light


    The Indicator light is an user interface unit allowing your Programmable Robot (or other devices supporting the GetInfo and SetInfo interfaces) to display an information using a colored light output voxel. The Indicator light can be assembled to form voxel display walls.

    How to make it

    Use the following manufacturing instructions to make the item. If you do not know how to use them, follow how to understand manufacturing instructions

    How to use it

    The Indicator light can be used with the Voxel_GetInfo(), Voxel_SetInfo() and Voxel_GetInfoDoc() functions of the Programmable Robot. Read the Programming Manual for more informations.

    Here is the GetInfo/Setinfo interface Index functionnalities :

    Index Property Read/Write Read Type Write Type
    0 Max Number for index R [integer]  
    1 Indicator light State R/W [integer] [bool][Integer]

    Setting the Indicator light state with the Index 1 will change the displayed color. Depending on the number you set with Voxel_SetInfo(x,y,z,1,Value), the color can be one of the following:

    Value Color
    0 White
    1 Grey Lvl.7
    2 Grey Lvl.6
    3 Grey Lvl.5
    4 Grey Lvl.4
    5 Grey Lvl.3
    6 Grey Lvl.2
    7 Black
    8 Red
    9 Green
    10 Blue
    11 Yellow
    12 Pink
    13 Cyan
    14 Sky Blue
    15 Orange

    Make a Programmable Robot an put the Indicator light on top of it. Then, try the following program :

    // Example #1: Get the state of the voxel at the top of the robot.
    function Voxel_Step()
    Voxel_SetInfo(0,1,0,1, GetRnd(16) );

    How to collect it

    You can collect it using any constructor/destructor.

    Version Evolution

    The Indicator light was introduced in Blackvoxel 1.3 (and preceding beta versions).
