SENSE Mapping (50 points) [2 tries]: – Robot seems to mark some blocks and move correctly - 20 points – Robot executes motion correctly and marks less than 5 blocks wrong - 10 points – Robot marks less than 2 blocks wrong - 10 points – All blocks correctly marked - 10 points
PLAN Planning (50 points) [2 tries]: – Robot seems to sense, plan and act - 10 points – Robot hits an obstacle after traveling at least 5 unique blocks - 20 points – Robot hits an obstacle after traveling at least 10 unique blocks - 10 points – Robot stops within two blocks of the goal - 5 points – Robot completes path in under 3 minutes - 5 points
Tips Not necessary to use dead reckoning. Mark the boundary of the map as an obstacle. When panning make sure to stop and wait for a few milliseconds before polling the sensor. Take multiple range readings and average them for better results. A good operating range for the LEGO ultrasound sensor is 2 - 20 inches. If two or more robots are close to each other, sensor readings may be spurious. Sample starter code for visual display of an 8 x 16 2D array is provided.
