Lesson: OSD 20V ESR A New Turn

Printer-friendly version
Objectives: 

This lesson uses a set of 5 CoderZ activities to show how Point Turns are coded in Cyber Robotics 101.  Unlike the Amazon Cyber Robotic Challenge where we just indicted a new direction with an arrow, in Cyber Robotics 101with the EV3 we must tell a Drive Block how fast (Power) to move and how sharp (Steering) to turn..... how much the EV3 turns is determined by how long we wait after giving this Drive/steering command.

1) Follow the animated prompts to adjust Drive & Wait Block values to make a 90 degree Point Turn in the Cyber Robotics 101 simulator:

2) Follow the animated prompts to adjust Drive Block steering direction to have the EV3 turn in the other direction in the Cyber Robotics 101 simulator:

3) Follow the animated prompts to tweak a Wait Block to successfully park the EV3:

4) Now, follow the animated prompts to park in the opposite direction:

5) Finally, put all these skills to work to park in reverse:

6) Answer these questions:

How are turns coded in Cyber Robotics 101? 
What determines how much the EV3 turns?
