Project 3 (Anty) Michel reising Seth Papania

Project Description for Phase 1

The prime directive of this project was to construct the ant robot and have it perform two tasks. The first requirement was to have the bot avoid obstacles with the ultrasonic sensor. The second requirement was to have the bot recognize colors and exhibit specific behaviors that correlate with what the sensor detects.

What I Learned in Phase 1

I learned how to construct a functioning bot without having the required pieces in the instructions. I also learned how to have the bot perform certain behaviors through the color sensor.

Project Description Phase 2

Using the same bot as previously mentioned the task was tool control its behavior through the iPad.

What I Learned Phase 2

I learned how to pair the brick with the iPad by naming the brick and activating the Bluetooth option in settings.
