In session one we defined the word Robot. We labeled the different part of a robot, for example we labeled the elbow, base, shoulders, gripper etc. We listed different advantages and disadvantages a robot could have, a advantage could have been it never got tired or it never never needed a brake. A disadvantage was it cost to much or it was easily to brake.we also learned how to opreate with Sam.
In session two we designed Sam a task, than we had to teach it to him so he could perform it. We taught Sam to perform the task and to run the task on the computer.
In session three we learned how a touch sensor functions and and learn how to program the NXT Brick. We also designed an NXT brick and successfully run the program. A touch sensor is is a simple mechanism that contains a button and a switch. When the button is pressed, the switch is thrown and the circuits inside of the sensor connect.
In session 4 we learned how an ultrasonic sensor works, we created a program using an ultrasonic sensor and the NXT brick. Then in the end we ran the program using the NXT brick. A ultrasonic sensor is a type of sensor for detecting liquids, clear objects, or irregularly shaped objects.
In session 5 we learned how the computer programs operate, learned how a sound sensor functions. We also created a program using the sound sensor and the NXT brick and then successfully ran the program. A sound sensor is a device that detects or senses heat, light, sound, motion, etc., and then reacts to it in a particular way.
In session 6 we learned how a light sensor function, created a program using the light sensor and the NXT brick, then we ran the program using the NXT brick. A light sensor is a photo sensors or photo detectors are sensors of light or other electromagnetic energy
In session 7 we learned how to combine multiple sensors on a robot. We created a program using multiple sensors and the NXT brick then ran the program.
