Hello Karan, John, other forum users:
I had two questions:
- Is it possible to create an encoder setting worksheet with predictable angle-of-turn equivalencies to encoder-targets, such as
- enc_tgt(1,1,22)= 45 degrees left
- enc_tgt(0,1,22) = 45 degrees right
If so, we could challenge kids to try to tweak encoder settings in their programs to get their bots to the end of a maze with predictable angles (e.g., 2 left turns of 45 degrees, and 1 right turn of 90 degrees).
- For an advanced project where the 2D LIDAR function is used in an unpredictable Maze, and the GoPiGo then moves toward the open spaces… how would the Robot know to turn toward and face one of the open spaces once scanned? You would almost need one anchoring point of orientation in the room (attach a Grove GPS sensor or compass?)
