this week we learned how to use the colour sensor, the colour sensor works by for example going straight until it sees the colour red then do a right or left turn witch is what our first challenge was
along with getting our robot to coast when it sees the colour and getting it to brake when it sees the colour. the colour sensor will only pick up a few colours (red,green,blue.black white and even no colour ) fun fact if your colour sensor is working you will be able to see the robot wobble a bit when it sees the colour our 2nd challenge was to get the robot to follow a black line on a white table our program didn’t work the first time but then we realised that we had the wrong colour set but it worked perfectly after we fixed it
this week we are learning how to use a touch sensor
first we added a sensor onto our robot
we where given 2 challenges to complete our first challenge was to get our robot to to move ford get the sensor to touch someone ‘s hand and stop it took a while to figure out how to use the sensor but after a while we kinda got the hang of it our only small problem was at first we couldn’t get the program to connect to our robot we figured out one of our cords wasn’t plugged in properly
our next challenge was to get our robot to tap wall with the sensor move back then do a ninety degrees turn our group started to make a program but we ran out of time to finish it
our group( Chloe,Eva,Charlotte) started by building our robot that we called POTATO_BOB
we tried and tried to get him to move but it was no use, after I tried to get bob to say hello it didn’t work but then after almost to hours POTATO _BOB SAID HELLO SUSSCESS
next week we will update and get him to move
TODAY POTATO_BOB WILL MOVE
FINALLY ARFTER DAYS OF HARD WORK WE DID IT
this week was based on programming our robots we started to create a program that would make our robot move ford we tried for hours we tried shutting down ,restarting ,switching laptops but nothing worked and by the end of the day we had to face that our robot would not move
but just as we thought all hope was lost
MR Mackie updated potato bob and now he is moving ford and saying hello
next we will work on further programming out robot
