Description

The pupils should build a rover robot that can be sent out and collect information about the surroundings (e.g. a planet). The robot should collect its information via sensors. It can be the sensors in the Spin module or from a camera. 

Ideas:

  • Get the sensors to react to a specific color
  • Get the sensors to react to intentensy of light
  • Get the sensors to drive towards the light
  • Get the IR sensor to get a message (from another Spin module)
  • Get the sensors to react to movement (gesture)
  • Get the joint module to collect a sample
  • Get the robot to react to input from a camera (GoPro)
