In this tutorial, you will learn how to program your robot to come to you when you call it, and do a happy dance when you pat it!

In this task you will learn about working with the ultrasonic and touch sensors.

Note: As with last week, you will need to do some building for this challenge, but the emphasis is on programming!

The challenge

The idea for the tutorial is to create a robot that comes to you when you “call” it, and do a happy dance when you pat it!

1. Tutorial

2. Try it for yourself

Once you’ve watched the tutorial, have a go at creating your own version of this program that incorporates the two sample programs shown in the video.

Note: The EV3 kit doesn’t include a sound sensor, so in this tutorial we use the ultrasound sensor to call the robot by waving at it. If, however, you’ve got access to an old sound sensor, you’re welcome to try using that instead.

3. Share it!

Finally, create an entry for your team journal describing what you tried, including what worked and what didn’t.

If you’ve got something cool to share, then please take a screenshot of your program and add it to your team journal (use the Add Media button at the top of the screen when you’re editing your post).
