Lesson: "Logic Loops"

Printer-friendly version
Overview: 
The goal of this lesson is to explore using logic to control loops in the Lego MINDSTORMS NXT-G program. Students will work through the "Logic Loops" video lesson on the "Advanced" page of the "NXT Video Trainer 2.0" product from Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Academy.
Objectives: 

Students will be able to:

1. Describe the advantage of using logic to control loops

2. Explain how a logic-controlledn Loop Block can be used to implement a more sophisticated wait-for function

3. Explain the operation of the "Compare" function in a Sensor Block's data hub

4. Explain the role of each parameter in a Logic Block

5. Write an NXT-G program for a robot which uses a logic-controlled Loop Block to implement a wait-for-mutiple sensors function

6. Write an NXT-G program for a robot which uses a logic-controlled Loop Block based on stored sensor readings from a Variable Block
