DESCRIPTION: The loop function was selected for continuous flow of the activity. The move function was then chosen so that the robot will be able to move forward. The Ultrasonic Sensor function was selected so that if the robot detects an object in front of it, it will stop and proceed to the next action. The next action is another move function which allows the robot to turn 180 degrees.  

TRIAL TWO
