In this lesson, we’re about to perform a classic act of robotics – programming an obstacle avoiding robot. At first, this task may seem too complicated, but soon you will find that creating your first obstacle avoiding robot is surprisingly easy. 🙂
Distance sensor is one of the most popular electronic components used in robotics. It’s highly useful and also a bit “magical”, because, at first sight, you can’t tell how exactly it works.
Naturally, the first thing that we all want to do with our new vehicles is to turn them on and perform a test drive. The easiest way to do this is to use our mobile app LOFI Control. However you can also program the steering yourself in LOFI Blocks, and that’s what we are going to do in this lesson. We are going to use programming to assign keyboard keys to specific actions of our DC motors, thus making our vehicles move!
