02 Mission Instructions

In this mission, you are an engineer tasked with creating a robotic guide dog. Your prototype should be able to lead someone on a pre-planned path around your home without running into walls or obstacles.

For additional Accessibility Mission resources, check out the GoBox course summary page.  

4. Design: Obstacle Avoidance Program

Now design the program for your robot. Here are some questions to consider:

              • How close to an object should the GoPiGo get before it reacts
              • How should the GoPiGo react to an obstacle? Should it stop? Turn? Back up? 
              • What else could your robot do? (Light signals, perhaps?)

Record your plan on a piece of paper or on your Mission Planning Page.
