Rover Monthly Challenge – February 2017

Posted February 2, 2017 by TEN80

200 Points

Due March 17, 2017


Rover teams should have a good understanding of how to avoid obstacles. While the Ten80 Rover kit only has one ultrasonic sensor, the Rover can effectively avoid obstacles with serve controlled sonar.

Set-up a small obstacle course for your Rover with 3 obstacles.  Can your Rover detect the obstacle, and then if it “sees it”, take a right turn and a left turn, and a right turn to simply drive around the obstacle. The obstacle can be a small box or other item with clearly defined outline for simplicity.
