2.6 Tilt It！¶
The tilt switch is a 2-pin device with a metal ball in the middle. When the switch is upright, the two pins are connected; when it is tilted, the two pins are disconnected.
When you put it upright, GP14 will get high; after tilting it, GP14 will get low.
The purpose of the 10K resistor is to keep the GP14 in a stable low state when the tilt switch is in a tilted state.
2.6_tilt_switch.pyfile under the path of
euler-kit/micropythonor copy this code into Thonny, then click “Run Current Script” or simply press F5 to run it.
Don’t forget to click on the “MicroPython (Raspberry Pi Pico)” interpreter in the bottom right corner.
For detailed tutorials, please refer to Open and Run Code Directly.
import machine import utime button = machine.Pin(14, machine.Pin.IN) while True: if button.value() == 0: print("The switch works!") utime.sleep(1)
After the program runs, when you tilt the breadboard (tilt switch), “The switch works!” will appear in the shell.
