EV3 lego robots

1This is my start on my ev3 robot, the part shown here is the right side of my robot. Some little parts of this were hard to find but it was pretty exiting when everything was put together. This part is the motor for the right wheel the left wheel has one too.

Once I finished building the base of the robots it got exiting because we were almost finished, I just had to connect the chords and I was done.

This is the final result and the way it works is the big screen thing (the brick) had a battery pack and powered everything linked with the chords. Like the wheels.

This was the fun part were I started to play around with some programs, I found the simple way to go forwards and turn and after you get the first program done it is really rewarding. soon I’ll be using some much better and more advanced programs.

This program was to make the robot go forward one wheel rotation. If you wanted it to go further you would have to set it to more wheel rotations, as show on the second circle. The first circle shows how much degrees it will turn that’s how you get the robot to turn.


 

LegoWeDo

This was my program for my first build:My first build was the tweety birds and they were powered by a motor and it made the cogs move, the pulley was connected to the cogs and they were powering the pulley (this is called mechanical energy).IMG_1004-1hpcy0i.

My second project was the spinner and this one was my favorite because the spinning top could spin really fast. Here is my program I used for the spinner.There was a sensor on the spinner and its job was to stop the motor from spinning when the handle came off the spinning top. The block in the program that looks like a timer was for the sensor to know when to go and stop. IMG_1131-1sstu57

The last project was the airoplane and this was also used a sensor (a tilt sensor). The program that I used was the longest off all and took some time to figure it out. (Sorry this photo wasn’t as good qulity because it was taken on the phone). I learnt that the sensor dosent just sense up and down it can also senses movement going side to side. The airplane has a propella which turns , it also changes the way it spins when the tilt sensor senses it. Video to come.

Circuts

Today we experimented with some simple circuts and I found out that negative energy goes in and positive energy goes out.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         The equipment we used was some batteries, wires, a small fan, a light bulb and a switch.

 The way we had to connect the batteries to different wires was really fun. At first getting the switch to work was pretty hard. The switch basically changed the direction of the electricity because their was a gap between the two metal plates and when they touched the elicticity went through to the other object. This video shows my mask project that I did after we played around with simple circuts.
