Robot Race (Teleoperated robots with bumper sensors)

We made a race between two robots. The robots have to go around obstacles which were made out of VEX IQ cubes. When they hit the obstacle, they stop for five seconds. People control the robots with a remote control. They do two laps around the course. The first person back wins. We programmed the bumper sensor when it gets hit to stop for five seconds. Our first idea was to use a color sensor. This idea did not work as well as we planned. We used one motor for each set of wheels.




I like this idea. Competitive, but not supposed to bump with the robots.
Next time we’ll do some kind of community event, I’d add this.
