Students Program Ultrasonic Sensor in Robotics Class

The robotics class is learning about the sensors that are in their kits. This last couple of weeks they have been learning how to code distancing using the ultrasonic sensor. They programmed in the compare mode and also in the change mode. Change Mode reads the distance and then waits for an increase or decrease. Compare Mode waits for a certain predefined distance. In the video you will see the robot using the ultrasonic sensor to stop before it gets to the cube, then using the medium to grab the cube to move to a new location. The student is also implementing previous task of turning and movements.
