Tilt Sensor/Switch Brick

On Arrival Tilt Sensor/Switch Brick

Electronic brick of tilt switch can be connected to analog I/O port and used in tilt sensor for smart car or robot. When the sensor is in the horizontal position, the output is high level; when the sensor rotates counterclockwise to form an angle of more than 15 ° with the horizontal line, the output is low level.

Features

1. Plug and play, easy to use. Compatible with the mainstream 2.54 interfaces and 4-Pin Grove interfaces in the market.

2. With use of M4 standard fixed holes, compatible with M4-standard kits such as Lego and Makeblock.

if(digitalRead(tilt)==HIGH) //when the digital output value of tilt is high, turn on the LED.
  {
    digitalWrite(LED, HIGH);  
  }
if(digitalRead(tilt)==LOW)  //when the digital output value of tilt is low, turn off the LED.
  {
    digitalWrite(LED, LOW);
  }
