Moving with the motors.

Making the robot move forwards and backwards

Try this program. What do you expect to happen? Vary the settings and see what it does

Fill in the table to record the results of experimenting with the robot using the program above.

What values would you need to use to make the robot move in a square around the leg of a chair?? Make it work.

Note: The creators of LeJos are very proud of their movement algorithms. They claim that, unlike the Lego software that often overshoots its mark up to 5 degrees when asked to rotate a specific number of degrees, the LeJos software is very accurate. The motors can also be controlled by speed and the motors will even maintain the requested speed if possible while going up or down hill and LeJos even allows you to check to see how fast the motor is running. The speed of the motor actually depends on the battery voltage and load.
