Example: count the length of time when the room filled with people (using the PIR “people sensor”). The result is expressed in seconds. The second,Hold for time: the input will stay the same for a period of time. In this period, any other input values will be ignored. If the hold period has been passed and the input is still “no”, the output will be set to “no”. Example:An alarming device that beeps 3 seconds after light detected. The third kind,Change Slowly: the output will change according to the input, but if the input is a number, every second the change will be no more than the specified number. Example:When the button is pressed, the light turns from green to red slowly (The number of the HOLD node’s config is set to 3). Software Nodes Card

6. I. How to Use Neur on: Neuron is a smart module-based electronic product. The product has many electronic modules with different functions to help children easily create works according to their own ideas. The electronic modules are easy to use owing to the compact design and magnetic interface. To create simple electronic works, children just need to connect different modules together. It can also be used to create many fun and interesting smart works by combining with the common craft-making materials; for example, small table lamps, strong light alarms, acoustic control lamps, etc.; the product is magnetic, which is convenient for children to show their own works. In addition, children can also use the Neuron APP to add more features for their works to make it better. Hardware Nine Features PogoPin : The modules are magnetically connected, easy to assembly and play, and convenient for children to connect different modules together. It can also prevent children from making mistakes in connecting the modules to the wrong sides. It’s easy-to-use and durable for 100,000 plays よ 1. Sensor: The Neuron creative lab has many sensors, and the modules can be divided into 3 categories according to their functions, “energy & communication”, “input”,and “output”, which correspond to green, orange and blue colors respectively, and are convenient for the users to identify the modules with different functions.Every Neuron module is equipped with an independent chip with a unique function. The sensors can collect information/values of the surrounding environment and convert the information into easy-to-read digits and other formats. 2. 3. Wireless and wired: Neuron modules support either wireless firmware update (via Bluetooth,WIFI) with iPads and smart phones, or firmware update and charging by connecting it directly to PCs via micro USB cables. 

150. Nodes Name: Number Explanation: Provide a number as a constant, or under a certain condition. How ir ia used: when you want something to happen if some value is above, below or equal a certain number. For example: 1) Set the parameter of another node. E.g., the rotation speed of a motor; 2) Let another node’s parameter change to a certain value when something happens. E.g., when the heat is up, the fan motor rotates at a certain (higher) speed. How it works: The number set in the config panel will be sent to the output. If an input is provided, the value is sent only if the input is “yes”; otherwise the output will be “no”. Example: set the speed of the DC Motor Drive to 50 Example: When the value of the light sensor is above 50, set the motor speed to 70. Software Nodes Card

152. Nodes Name: Interval Explanation: Flips the output repeatedly, at a certain interval. How ir ia used: The output of the interval node flips between “yes” and “no” by itself. It is useful when: 1) You want to make a blinking light or a jiggling robot; 2) You want to do something periodically, like taking a photo every 30 seconds. How it works: In the config panel, choose the how many seconds before the result flips. Example: making a blinking light Example: making a “beep-beep” alarm when overheat. Software Nodes Card

153. Nodes Name: Not Explanation: YES to NO and NO to YES. How ir ia used: Logical “NOT” stands for “if not”, “else” or “otherwise”. It flips the input from “yes” to “no” and “no” to “yes”. Useful in cases like: 1) Do something when the button is “NOT” pressed; 2) If the Interval node is flipped to no, do something else. How it works: Just attach the input, and get the opposite result. Example: if the button is connected, turn red; otherwise, turn green. Color cycles between red and green. Software Nodes Card

154. Nodes Name: And Explanation: YES if all inputs are YES. How ir ia used: The logical “AND” node outputs “yes” only when all the input sources say “yes”. It can be used in situations like: 1) If the room temperature is high “AND” it is past 6 o’clock, turn on the fan; How it works: The “AND” node says “yes” when all the sources of input are considered “yes”. On a hot evening (temperature is over 30 and current hour is over 17, 5pm in the evening), turn on the fan (hooked up to a motor). Color cycles between red and green. Software Nodes Card

How it works: When the input changes from “no” to “yes”(we call it a “rising edge” in electric engineering), the output will flip between “yes” and “no”. Example: use a button as a switch Software Nodes Card

157. Nodes Name: Counter Explanation: Plus one when activated. How ir ia used: The “Counter” node keeps a number for counting; it goes up each time the input flips from “no” to “yes”. This is useful when you want to: 1) Keep a number of something, like how may time the gyro is shaken; 2) Make a stopwatch: count how many seconds did some event last; 3) Make a timer: let something happen after a certain time period is passed. How it works: When the input changes from “no” to “yes”(we call it a “rising edge” in electric engineering), the number displayed in the node will plus one, and goes to the output. If you push the “reset” button, the number will be reset to zero; the same will happen if the “RESET” input changes from “no” to “yes”. Example: count the length of time when the room filled with people (using the PIR “people sensor”). The result is expressed in seconds. Example: making a countdown, use the COMPUTE+ node. Software Nodes Card

158. Nodes Name: Hold Explanation: Keep the input unchanged for a period of time. How ir ia used: You can let buzzer sing a song whenever you shake the gyro. But as soon as the gyro is not shaken, the song will instantly stop. To let the song keep playing, you need to “HOLD” the “gyro is shaking” input for a period of time. This is when HOLD comes into the scene. It can: 1) Keep the input value, until another not “no” value comes in; 2) Keep the input value unchanged for a period of time; 3) Let the input change gradually. How it works: You can choose one of the three modes from the config pane. Software Nodes Card

162. Nodes Name: Today Explanation: Get the date (year, month, day) today. How ir ia used: Node “TODAY” outputs today’s month, the day of the month, and day of the week. It can be used to: - Do something on a specific day. How it works: There are 3 outputs in this node, and the meaning is straightforward: the day of the month(D), the month(M), and the day of the week(W) of today. Example: light up the light strip on May the 4th. Software Nodes Card

163. Nodes Name: Now Explanation: Get the hour, minute, and second now. How ir ia used: NNode “NOW” outputs the current time, in the format of hour, minutes, and seconds. It can be used to: 1) Do something at a specific time of the day; 2) Do something every second, every a few seconds or every minute. How it works: There are 3 outputs in this node, and the meaning is straightforward: the hour(H), the minute(M), and the second(S) of the current time. Example: Example: an alarm clock that buzzes for 10 seconds at 7:00. Software Nodes Card

165. Nodes Name: Sequence Explanation: Perform a series of actions according to their time. How ir ia used: TThe “SEQUENCE” node turns on each output one-by-one for a period of time. It can be used for: 1) Define an action as a series of moves. Such as shaking heads or waving hands; 2) Perform a certain action when a certain condition is met; How it works: Connect the action to the input of the SEQUENCE node; connect the moves to each of its outputs. Tap on the numbers on the node to set the duration of each output. And use the plus and minus sign to add/remove outputs. Example: a traffic light that greens for 10 seconds, yellows for 3 seconds, and red for 30 seconds. Example: when there is a person in front of the device (detected by the PIR sensor), nod head by repeatedly shaking the servo attached to port 1; otherwise, shake head by repeatedly shaking the servo attached to port 2.

166. Nodes Name: Random Explanation: Make an irregular output every time. How ir ia used: The RANDOM node can generate a random number. It is used to: - Make a dice, or make an effect that produces a different result every time. How it works: There are 3 outputs in this node, and the meaning is straightforward: the day of the month(D), the month(M), and the day of the week(W) of today. Example: a light that changes its color randomly Software Nodes Card

167. Nodes Name: Scale Explanation: Map the input from a range to another. How ir ia used: 1) Cases when the given input ranges from 0-100, but the output needs to be 0-255. 2) When the input changes too steadily or drastically, you can scale it to the range you want; How it works: Set two ranges from the config panel. The input will be scaled according to the set range. Example: make a thermometer. The temperature (0~50) is scaled to the angle of the servo (0~70) that has a needle stick on it that acts as a pointer. Example: You can use the Scale node to reverse a value.make a light that changes according to the temperature. When it is hot, it turns red; when it is cold, it turns blue. The first SCALE node scales the range of temperature to 0~255, the range of light color. The second SCALE node makes the “blue” value changes to the opposite direction of the red value. Software Nodes Card

168. Nodes Name: Filter Explanation: Only output the input if it falls within the certain range. How ir ia used: Act differently when the input is in the different range. It makes your program more concise than using a bunch of COMPARE nodes. How it works: Set a range in the config panel. If the input falls in the range, output the input itself; otherwise, output NO. Example: when the temperature is 0~20, turn green; when it is 20~30, turn yellow; when it is 30~40, turn red. Software Nodes Card

169. Nodes Name: Function Explanation: Pass the input through a mathematical function. How ir ia used: In case you needs to do some mathematical operation, like rounding a number to its nearest integer, FUNCTION comes to help. How it works: Set the function you want to use in the config panel. The output will always be the input passing through the function you choose. The settings panel of the function Example: a knob that can set an integer number from 1 to 10. Software Nodes Card

171. Nodes Name: Compare Plus Explanation: Compare the value of two input sources. How ir ia used: 1) Make a comparison where all operands can change. 2) Use the value of a sensor or input device as the threshold of an alarm system. How it works: Set the operator (>, <, =) in the config panel. Connect two operands to the input. The result will YES if the comparation condition is met. Otherwise it will output NO. Example: a light-sensor-based alarm device whose sensitivity is controlled by a knob. Software Nodes Card

172. Nodes Name: Valve Explanation: Output some value if the condition is met. How ir ia used: “Conditional” nodes like COMPARE only outputs YES or NO; in case you want to output a value other than YES/NO, you will need the VALVE node. How it works: The upper input takes YES/NO; the lower input takes a value. If the upper input is YES, the lower input is sent to the node’s output; otherwise the node will output NO. Example:While controlling the LED light switch, you can enter the value to control the brightness of the light. Software Nodes Card

151. Nodes Name: Compute Explanation: Make a certain arithmetic (+, -, *, /) operation on the input. How ir ia used: If you want your creation reacts to the slightest change in the room temperature, or you want the car moves, but have more juice when the color is blue, the “Compute” node comes to help. It can: - Amplify the input to a certain factor - Give an initial value of input by adding it to a constant number - Count numbers in a cycle by using the “mod” operator. How it works: Pick an operator(“+”, “-“, “*”, “/”) and an operand (the number you want to add or subtract with). The output will be the input compute with the configured operand. When the temperature is over 30 (degrees Celsius), sound the buzzer. Tips: 1 If the input is a string, the node will try to convert it to a number; if failed, the output will be “no”. 2) If the input is an object, the output will always be “no”. 3) A hanging input yields “no”. Software Nodes Card

155. Nodes Name: Or Explanation: YES if any of the inputs is YES. How ir ia used: The logical “OR” node outputs “yes” if any of the input sources say “yes”. It can be used when: - If there is light (the drawer is open), sound the alarm; If the gyro is shaken (the creation is moved by somebody), also sound the alarm. How it works: The “OR” node says “yes” whenever a source of the input is considered “yes”. Example: an alarming device that alarms when exposed to light (light sensor value > 30), or if it is moved (the gyro is shaken). Tips: 1 In fact, you do not need an “OR” node very often because an “OR” logic is placed inside the input of most nodes. Software Nodes Card

170. Nodes Name: Compute Plus Explanation: Make arithmetical operation on two inputs. How ir ia used: Pick an operator(+, -, *, /) make the result variates according to two input sources. How it works: Set the operator(+, -, *, /) in the config panel. The result will be . Example: if you connect A to the upper input, B to the lower input, and the operator is +, then the result will be A+B. Software Nodes Card

IoT cloud platform: By using the cloud control node in Neuron APP, the users can share their small works by sending the QR codes or links to friends. In addition, it’s also possible to use another device to remotely control the creative works so as to show the ideas remotely. Paper-based models (using craft-making materials) : In the neuron lab kit, there are ready-to-use paper-based models corresponding to some lessons. It is also possible to download paper-based models online, or design your own paper-based models. For kids who love craftworks, the neuron electronic building blocks can add intelligence components to the commonly-used craft-making materials, and make the final works more creative; 7. Building blocks (LEGO) :There are several holes on the Neuron magnetic board, adaptive to the LEGO Technical series products, which helps the building block enthusiasts make more creative works; by using the building blocks to make more engineering structures and with the assistance of Neuron’s electronic features, your final works will surely have a lot of cool effects. 8. 9. Everyday materials: The plants and fruits that you can see in everyday life can also be combined with neuron modules to achieve fun functions; for example, leaves, bananas, lemons, oranges, etc. Structures Visual Program(mBlock5): Graphical programming software independently developed based on Scratch. It can be downloaded and used by PC users, and more than 2 million users in the world choose mBlock5 as the programming learning tool, which supports windows, macOS,Linux, Chromme, OS and other user environments. 

160. Nodes Name: Delay Explanation: Make it happen after some time. How ir ia used: Delay node will take an input, and send it to the output after a set period of time. It is useful when: 1)You want something happens after an event but after a period of time; 2)You want something happens after an event, and after a period of time, some other thing happens after an event. How it works: Every input will be sent to the output after a certain period of time (provided in the config panel). Example: When the button is pressed, rotate the motor, then rotate it reversely after 1 second. Tips: 1 An easy way to understand the “DELAY” node is: the output is always certain seconds behind the input. Software Nodes Card

161. Nodes Name: Average Explanation: Average over a period of time. How ir ia used: Imagine you want to build a device that alarms the mother whenever the baby cry, using the movement value (acceleration) detected by the gyro sensor. But if the alarm sounds every time there is little disturbance of the sensor (e.g. when the baby flips his/her arm), the mother will be crazy. Using the “average” node will let the result reflects the average of the input value over a period of time, filtering out noise data. How it works: The result will be the average value of the input over a period of time. You can set the period of time (engineers call that sampling window) you want to perform the average in the config panel. Example: a “baby monitor” that alarms the mother when the baby cries (which makes the gyro shaken for a period of time. The Y Acceleration is used to represent shaking). Tips: 1 A smaller sampling window means the output is more sensitive to the change of the input. Software Nodes Card

164. Nodes Name: Pulse Explanation: Make the output cycles over time. How ir ia used: The PULSE node’s output changes with the time according to the waveform specified in the config panel. It can be used to: 1) Make a “breathing” light/sound/movement effect; make the movement looks smooth; How it works: In the settings panel, you can set the following parameters of the pulse generated: 1) Waveform: it can be “sin”, “square” and “triangle”. “Sin” waveform looks like breathing: it slows down at the top and bottom value. “Square” acts similar to the “INTERVAL” note, it turns on and off at each time period. “Triangle” is steadier(lin - ear) when changing, but drives in the opposite way sharply when it reaches its maximum and minimum value. 2) Wavelength: the time in seconds that a pulse reaches its full cycle and starts to repeat itself. 3) Amplitude: the maximum value and (the negative) minimum value of the pulse Example: a breathing light . Tips: 1 An easy way to understand the “DELAY” node is: the output is always certain seconds behind the input. Software Nodes Card
