SC 2014 Semilab: Robotics with LEGO NXT - the MazeRunner

by Alexander Kirillov

Original announcement

In this semilab, students will build and program robots using LEGO NXT set. They will divided into teams of 2-3 students; each team will build and program their own robot using RobotC, a C-like programming language. The task chosen for this year is to build a robot capable of navigating a maze.


Actual results

This semilab was quite successful; most teams were able to program the robot in RobotC to find its way out of the maze using the wall follower algorithm. We didn't have time to program more complicated algorithms, such as Pledge algorithm.
