  4. ROBOLAB examples

    ROBOLAB examples

    These examples (PDF) demonstrate the use of various features in ROBOLAB. NXT multiple events Multiple events can be setup in the same code to track different variables. All event structures must have the same event landing. This means that if 3 events are setup and only one triggers, the code will...

  5. Snail car

    Snail car

    The idea of this challenge is to design and construct a car that can move extremely slowly. These cars must compete in the snail race; the winner is the car that crosses the finish line last. Note: The WeDo car stays tethered to the computer via the USB cable so...
