Programming the robot buggy
Work as a team to program the robot buggy so that it can navigate a maze path.
Programmable robotic systems are becoming an important part of industrial developments in Design and Technology. Robots are now being developed that can sense changes in their surroundings and respond accordingly.
In this unit of learning, learners will use the BBC micro:bit to develop a robotic buggy that can successfully navigate a maze or path.
In this activity, learners will work as a team to program the robot buggy so that it can navigate a maze path.
