Switches

A set of five switches, in different configurations.

Each switch is mounted on 1 X 4 brick, with wires to connect to Handyboard inputs. Wires are colour-coded to avoid confusion.

Use to detect collisions with walls or other robots, to detect the bumps on the table surface, or for other mechanical sensing.
