The Full Story
LEGO EV3 Programming
SmartLab students are challenged to build and program a robot with sensors. Robots use sensors to collect information about their environment in order to respond in an informed way. Robots use sensors to collect information. This information directs the behavior of the robot.
One can compare robotic sensors to our own set of senses: touch, smell, hearing, taste, and vision. Without these information inputs, one would not be able to work effectively in and with one's environment. The same goes for robots.
