I did a simple app:
which does not do what I want 🙂
Motors should stop when I press any key on the remote control.
What did I wrong?
PS: I am excited about the edison robot 🙂 :thumb_UP!

I am glad to hear you are so excited about the Edison robot.
Your logic in the program is correct, in the way that the Edison will stop when an IR message is received.
However, there are a couple of different lessons to be had with your program.
First of all, where you added the sensing block ‘IR Message detected’. This block is for messages passed from an Edison to another Edison. This means that if you had two Edisons in the same area you can get them to send an IR message to each other. Then once the Edison received the message it will stop running.
The solution to this problem is to change the ‘IR Message detected’ block to ‘Remote code ‘0’ received’. But that is not the end of that. You will need to pair the Edison robot to a remote control. This is done by scanning a barcode for a remote code (0, 1, 2… etc) then the Edison will wait for a button pressed on a remote.
To learn about barcodes you can head to https://meetedison.com/barcodes/
To find the barcodes to print: https://meetedison.com/content/Edison-robot-barcodes.pdf
I do also suggest learning a bit more about messages being sent and received by the Edison. The link below is for EdScratch lessons. I think that lessons U4-2.5 and U4-2.5a will be very beneficial. https://meetedison.com/content/EdScratch/EdScratch-student-lesson-activities.pdf
I hope you continue to learn and have fun with your Edison robot.
