SfLoM Wiki 8 – Programming Robots

In a proper paragraph explain how motors can be programmed to move a robot. Discuss the different types of robot movements possible. Explain some of the challenges of using motors with a robot.

Next, in a new paragraph explain what a sensor is and discuss the different types of sensors. Also discuss how the sensors can be used to help your robot perform tasks.

Finally, include two pictures. The first should be of a Lego Mindstorms robot. The second should be one of the sensors used by a Lego Mindstorms robot.

Your final Wiki entry should contain:
  • A title describing the contents of the entry
  • 1 paragraph discussing motor use and function
  • 1 paragraph defining sensors and uses
  • 2 pictures – one of a Lego Mindstorms robot and one of the sensors it uses
  • Correct spelling & grammar
