88 You are divided into groups of four to design your robot. You can follow the steps as below: 1.Decide the purpose of the robot. 2. Make a list of the abilities the robot has. 3.Draw a picture on a piece of paper and name its parts and explain what each part does. 4.Write a paragraph describing the robot and what it can do.
89 Tips on designing your robots: For each robot that you build, you will have to choose options for six major robot characteristics. These are: 1.Looks: What does the robot look like? Is there a reason for it to look as it does? 2.Sensing: How does the robot know or figure out whats in its environment?
90 3. Movement: How does the robot move within its environment? 4.Manipulation: How does the robot move or manipulate other objects within its environment? 5.Energy: How is the robot powered? Can it have more than one energy source? 6.Intelligence: How does the robot think?
91 Its your time to design your groups robot.
92 A sample writing: The rubbish collector The rubbish collector is a robot about half the size of a small car. Its body is square and contains a large rubbish bin inside it. It has a camera attached to the top front of its body. Also at the front is a pair of arms. Underneath it has four wheels and six legs. With the camera it can see rubbish such as paper, glass, and plastic. If the surface of the ground is smooth, it runs on its wheels, and if the ground is rough, it unfolds its legs and walks.
93 When it sees a piece of rubbish, it stops and uses its arms to pick it up and put it in its rubbish bin. However, when it sees a person, an animal or a plant, it goes around it as it is able to recognize when something is not a piece of rubbish. The company should make this robot as it would be very popular with schools. It would clean the outside grounds of the school and so give the students more time to spend on their studies. It would also be a great advantage to have at sports grounds or any other area where rubbish is dropped by the public.
94 Homework Let the students finish their composition after class and exchange the compositions with the desk mates, then correct the mistakes for each other.
