This project is solving the Lego Rovers challenge.
A mobile version of the project Legonauts (also by us).
It is an improved version of the main project LegoRovers by Dr. Louis Dennis and her team, with the purpose of showing children how crucial programming is in a rover mission, like many out there, our project takes two parts that control the rover remotely via Bluetooth:
- PC controlling software (very children friendly) which will work in any platform/architecture ,Mac, Windows, Linux , running a JVM.
- mobile application running in Android
One of the important features is the use of a list of instruction-set so the children can get familiar with a basic programming instructions and also IF..THEN..ELSE instructions which can be customized via the interface, meaning that for some children "detecting an obstacle" may mean:
- Move Back 10 inches
- Turn 90 degrees left
- Move Forward
