Today I have some questions about our robotics project that I am going to answer. And here are the said questions.

Said questions

Question 1. What does it mean if you are using rotations to measure your robots movements? Explain.

It means you are measuring each rotations and adding enough rotations together to make a meter.

Question 2. What does it mean if you use degrees to measure your robots movements?

If you have 0 degrees you will just go straight forward, if you have you robot set on 90 degrees your robot will take a 90 degrees turn. And if you set it on 180 it will go half a turn. And if you set it on 160 it will just go around in circles.

Question 1. Did you guess and check a lot?

YES! We guessed and checked A LOT. Sometimes the robot would go way over the meter line and sometimes far behind. Sometimes it would go just one centimetre over the meter line and sometimes one centimetre behind. We did have to guess and check a lot.

Question 2. Does it matter if you change the speed if so when?

It does matter. Yes. Because if you set your robot on 5.1 seconds and 41 percent power it will work fine but if you set your robot on 50 seconds and 41 percent power will work.

Question 3. Does it matter what size your wheels are? Why?

Yes it does matter what size you wheels are, because if you wheels are big then the length your robot goes in one rotation is longer. If your wheels are smaller then the length your robot goes in one rotation is shorter.

Question 3. Dose the battery level have an impact on the robot? How?

Yes it does make an impact because the battery level is like a human energy level. If it is low the person\robot wonâ€™t work as well. But if it is high the robot\person will go really fast.

So whoever you are, where ever you are I hope you learned something. because I did.
