  • Search for “ringbitcar” and click on the ring:bit car package to add it to your project. (As below picture)


Note:If you get a warning telling you some packages will be removed because of incompatibility issues, either follow the prompts or create a new project in the Project file menu.

Step 2

  • Snap the on start block from the Basic and initialize the P1 port to left wheel and the P2 port to right wheel.
