Challenge 5: Here’s one we made earlier

Watch Lorraine drive the physical computing robot around the floor
Let me show you all the different parts working. Here’s the steering wheel, the pedals, and the indicator. It’s a bit difficult to see the indicators in this room because it’s so bright. So I’m just going to zoom in as I press the button. So this is going to be the left indicator. This is the front of the robot. That is left, and that is right. So as I press blue, we just try and get that.
There is our indicator. Now let’s try and putting it all together. I’m going to leave the indicator because I just don’t have enough hands to do everything. So I’m going to try, and go, and stop, and steer at the same time. Wish me luck.
[LAUGHS] Ooh, close!
