We had our team kickoff, and the team was very intent on studying the training mat! The challenge: follow the curvy line. This was a difficult assignment, but rewarding as well! We plan to integrate many more training activities with this mat as the team learns how best to design and program the bot!
One of the biggest challenges was all of the lines on the mat. Certain areas were a challenge for the light sensor, as it was trying to follow the black curvy line.
With only 2 veterans returning this year, the majority of our team are rookies. These mats will help bring the kids up to speed and even teach the veterans a few new things! One of our goals this year is to try to use more of the sensors. The Robot Mats will help us to achieve that goal most effectively!
