This series of videos explores the parts of the robot, how robots view their surroundings, the logic that robots use, and how to command the robot to accomplish tasks.
Program a Lego Robot to navigate a course using free software. This series of videos explains components, programming, and logic used by robots.
Robots use sensors to gather information about their surroundings and motors to move. This video is an overview of the parts of the Lego Robot you will be programming.
The Lego robot uses motors to move itself and to manipulate objects. Let's explore how these motors work, how to drive where we want to go, and how we know how far we've gone.
Learn how to program a robot to avoid walls and obstacles using a touch sensor and loops.
Learn to use the gyro sensor to determine which way the robot is facing. This allows us to make sharper and more repeatable turns.
Learn how to follow lines using a color sensor and a new type of logic called switches.
In the touch sensor video, we learned how to turn after hitting a wall. Now let's learn how to a avoid walls before impacting them by using switches and IR sensors.
