Sensor : Colour
Today we learned about sensors and how they work, a sensor is something that detects something and gives data into the machine it is used from. We worked on a colour sensor and it was challenging to make it work. The colour sensor picked up colour and when it picked it up it stopped the robot. My program went up to a green piece and stopped using the sensor, but we didn’t quite get it to do anything more.
Today we learned about touch sensors and how they work, a touch sensor is a sensor that goes up to something and uses a spring like device, it touches something and then data goes in the robot to tell the robot to do something else. We had two challenges, the first one is to hit your hand and stop, the second one is to touch a wall, go backwards a bit, and to turn.
