Thymio proximity sensors: a new activity geared to primary schools

With the VPL3 visual programming language, you can create a program in just a few minutes, simply by combining the right blocks to create a sequence of actions and/or behaviours.

Thymio is now offering a new VPL3 activity, designed to show users how to use the Thymio robot’s proximity sensors. There are a total of 5, located at the front of the robot. If used correctly, you can teach Thymio to avoid obstacles according to different detection thresholds, and even react to the presence of your hand!
