One of mBot's defaults programs allows it to detect and move around obstacles. In this activity, students learn how to recreate part of the obstacle-avoidance behavior using data from the Ultrasonic Sensor.
- Learn to how the Ultrasonic Sensor operates.
- Use the output of the Ultrasonic Sensor to trigger events an mBot program.
- Apply an understanding of the Ultrasonic Sensor to mimic the actions required of real-world autonomous vehicles.
- Practice writing code and troubleshooting when problems arise.
