Robotics

Devon and Jarred were selected specially because they are awesome [Miss C said] and they went to do robotics to see John who was a expert at use these Lego robots. The robot had a brain that was called a brick, the brick had 4 buttons, left, right, select and back. Every robot could walk left, right, back, back right, back left, forward right, forward left, forward for 2 seconds and five seconds, wait for 2, 5 or 10 seconds, loop, stop, move at a object, move at sound, or move on a black line plus much much more.

Each robot had a name I can remember some, Sue, Cyrus, Rodney and Phillip. With the robots there was a touch sensor. He showed us (everyone that was there) some videos from a tournament.

We did a course that only a few people completed. Forward, right, around the bucket, through the middle, around the other bucket and back again...

  1. I was lucky enough to have a go with one of these robots a little while ago and it is harder than it looks! Well done Jarred and Devon. It sounds like you could make your robot do more than I could.

  2. That looks so much fun! It must have been very tricky to programme your robot to go where you wanted it to go.
