6. Taking it Further


Play this video
Taking it Further! Go Full Screen to see in greater detail?

Here we will create a program that

  1. moves forward for 2 seconds,
  2. stops for 2 seconds
  3. moves forwards 2 more seconds,
  4. stops again for 2 seconds
  5. and moves forward once more for 2 seconds. 
  6. The program should then move backwards for 6 seconds.

Watch the movie to see how this all comes together.




What you have to do!

  1. Plan your program by completing Task 8 in your Robolab Progress Extension Grids
    1. Drag Icons into what you think is the correct position. (click on and hold mouse button down while you drag)
    2. Correct positions are marked with Green Tick.
    3. Wrong positions are marked with Red Cross.
      • Be Careful. There is a deliberate mistake to test your confidence in your program.
      • Or is there ....!
  2. Start the Robolab Software - if it isn't already open..
  3. Create the program and transfer it to the cart.
  4. Once the program is working correctly Tick Off Task 6 in the main Robolab Progress Grids.
