ACT 5: Walls and Edges


Task Description:
This task uses the touch sensor, an activator and simple loop program to move your robot and negotiate collisions. This program can also be adapted to rescue objects in the rescue robot competition or strike the ball in robot soccer.

TRIAL ONE

Description: The loop function was first added so this activity could be repeated continuously until stopped. To begin the movement of the robot, the move function was selected and left at its default options. The touch sensor function was then added for when the touch sensor is activated, the next function will then continue. Then another move function was added so once the collision has happened, the robot will move away from the wall or object it has collided with.


TRIAL TWO

Description: In the first move function, the direction was changed to reverse as the touch sensor was located at the back of the robot.
