Assessment: EV3 - Robo-Science Accident Challenge - Braking

Assessment Type: 

This is an Extension to the Robo-Science Accident Challenge.

Students are challenged to build an autonomous braking system for the truck to minimize the impact of the collision.

The .EV3 file has the program to deploy a bake motor on Port A.  The braking motor will deploy when the color sensor crosses the "start" line".

The .lxf files show the braking motor attachment which can be added to the truck - the actual structure and design of the braking material is not shown and is left to the students to explore how to maximize friction in their design to disapate as much kinetic energy as possible before the collision point.
