On the 15/6 Romy, Charlotte and myself are competing in a robot competition at Christen College Highton. We got given a challenge to work on as practise for the competition
This is the program our group worked out.
I took this photo of Romy’s computer because we did the program on hers.
This is the video of our robot doing the challenge.
I can notice that when the colour sensor has come off the black line it starts to go diagonal to find the line again.
By doing this challenge, I now know how to get my robot to follow a straight line and I think that will help our group a lot with the robo-cup competition.
Today we got given a new task for robo-cup. It is called ultrasonic sensor it senses objects. This is what the ultrasonic sensor looks like.
Romy, Charlotte and I have connected another colour sensor to our robot. For this challenge there is something new added because we got ultrasonic sensors now. The new part of the cores is at the end it is you robot needs to sense the object on the green tile at the end of the cores, if the ultrasonic senses the can it will put is of the course.
This is my program for this challenge. We did the programing on Romy’s computer so I took a photo of her computer.
We found it hard how you needed to put a switch brick in a switch brick but in the end we learnt how too do it.
This is my screen cast of how my program works and why I choose to put the bricks where I put them.
This is a video of the robot doing this program.
Today was the robo-cup competition. My group did a amazing job with placing 1st over all in the rescue category. It was not easy we faced challenges and problems such as our colour senor kept falling off and the motor burned out but in the end we did it.
What happened on the day ⬇️
When we got to Christen College Highton the teachers laid out some practice tiles to practice on but our group did not get much practise because we have problems working out the number of the Reflective light .When round one had started we were Nevers but exited, we pressed the button on our robot and it was following the line smoothly when it got to the last tile the rescue tile the robot did not sense the silver so it just went straight. at the end of that round we were on 40 out of 50 points and we were happy with that giving we have never done robo-cup before after a bit we looked at our program and we realised we have it in the last brick in the wrong port and we laughed but it was good we noticed it so we could change it for the next round. For the next round the judges placed another tile. In this round our group had susses because we completed the cores and got full points. In the next round we had a good run again scoring full points. In the next round we did complete the cores but I did have to move The robot back to the silver bit at the end but because it was within the two minutes it counted as full pontes. The last round we did not get any time to practice so we just used the program from the last round and we manage to do the hole of the line following part which scored us 80 points but we did not complete the rescue part. The judges called all of the competitors over for the presentations for the rescue and the soccer competitions, in the rescue competition Geelong College red came third, Geelong college pink came second and Geelong college black came first.
I do not have a photo of my programs I used but for most of the rounds we used this program.
Video is coming
I really liked competing in the joiner rescue robo-cup championships and I am really proud of where our team finish and all of the other Geelong College teams. I learnt so much about Ev3 and I hope to go to the next round of robo-cup.
