MAI Cup Junior: Starting the Robot Trials

This week we rebuilt the line sensors because they hadn`t worked properly. Finally, they do their job. We went on coding the bot. We coded more than 300 lines. The first code is almost finished. The bot can now drive through the maze. We are about to fit in the ball caster. The ball caster … MAI Cup Junior: Starting the Robot Trials weiterlesen

MAI Cup Junior: Colour Sensors

This week we managed to build in three colour sensors. With the help of those sensors, we can measure the intensity of the reflected light. The reflected light shows us the colour of the bottom of the maze. Those are the pieces of information we need so that our robot can follow the line. We … MAI Cup Junior: Colour Sensors weiterlesen

MAI Cup Junior: Prototype Successfully Tested

This week we plugged in the ultrasonic sensors. It took quite some time to figure out the right ports. In order to program the ultrasonic sensors we reworked the code to make the sensors work. We also added comments so that everyone in our team can easily understand the code. However, the ultrasonic sensors didn`t … MAI Cup Junior: Prototype Successfully Tested weiterlesen

MAI Cup Junior: Ultrasonic Sensor Up, Motors Down

This week we tried to program some code to measure the distance to the wall. To do that we need an ultrasonic sensor. One of our team members took the time and he installed the sensor, so the only thing left to do was to create a code, which had a few errors a few … MAI Cup Junior: Ultrasonic Sensor Up, Motors Down weiterlesen
