Define robot movement as it sees light

Watch how you can define robot movement as it sees light by using one of the Begin Robotics simulations, before having a try yourself.

As we discussed in Step 2.9, some robots can have light sensors to sense if an object is nearby. This video, shows you how to define the speed depending on the strength of the beam used to detect objects.

Once you’ve watched the video, go on to the next Step to have a go yourself!

Don’t worry if you are unable to do the exercise yourself. You can watch how Richard approaches the simulation in Step 2.21.
