We are making a fast car with Lego the coding helps it move. There are sensors that can make it follow a line. We all got allocated a job, I worked mostly on the coding while Tom worked on the construction and Angus worked on the camera and assisted me with coding. I will show you our robot, but first let’s take a look at the coding.
We used EV3 to code. It was tricky at first but got easier after completing a few blocks.
I’ve been enjoying this project, building and trying new things. At my old school I didn’t get this opportunity. I’ve loved working with my friends to make this robot. In my opinion the coding works really well with your friends because you can learn together.
This is what our robot looks like. Unfortunately someone broke our first two attempts so we couldn’t complete a fast car however we managed to make a sling shot on wheels. The wheels will move to the spot it knows its heading towards. On top we have a pin ball getting slung into a cup.
It’s been really fun but challenging when someone took our pieces. We didn’t get it complete but we enjoyed working on the project.
This is how it works:
