CNC Machine A CNC Machine that allows for simulation movement in the X, Y, Z directions and also providing access to the Drill
Car Seat An electric car seat chassis with a series of motors and sensors. Students should workthrough exercises to learn the principles of electric car seats including how to saveand load memory positions.
Pedestrian Crossing A set of pedestrian crossing lights complete with manual light control, a simple state machine and anautomatic mode to allow the lights to take care of themselves.
Traffic Light 1_Way A set of one way traffic lights complete with manual light control, a simple state machine and anautomatic mode to allow the lights to take care of themselves.

Test & Debug

Base Unlocking this pack will give the developer access to the debugging features of Flowcode such as Code Profiling and Ghost technology (In Circuit Debug and In Circuit Test), including the Data Recorder, Console and Oscilloscope features
Data Recorder Allows you to track and monitor a number of analog and dig
Console Allows you to log events as they happen, enter user text and debug communications systems directly from within the Flowcode environment.
Oscilloscope Allows you to track and monitor up to four repeating signals with standard oscilloscope functionality such as triggering, scaling and overlaying waveform signals.

C-Code Simulation

Unlocks the ability to simulate the most common C code constructs in your projects or to convert your custom C-code into easier to visualise Flowcharts using the new C-code conversion tool.
C Code icons can be simulated directly
C Code icons can be translated into native Flowcode icons (Flowchart / Blocks / Pseudocode)
