This is the third challenge within the Robotics with GoPiGo and Python Curriculum.
Your task is to design a robot program that can navigate through the maze-like jungle without trampling over any plants or getting stuck in any dead ends.
Learn how to use the Distance Sensor and practice using the left-hand rule of maze-solving.
Recently, you heard about a group of academic researchers that have gone missing after setting off on a geological field trip in the Amazonian rain forest. The Amazon rainforest covers much of northwestern Brazil and extends into Colombia, Peru and other South American countries. It is the world’s largest tropical rainforest, famous for its biodiversity.
Luckily, the researchers brought a research robot with them on the expedition, but they've reached out to you for help developing a program that can guide them safely out of the jungle without damaging the plants and animals in this complex ecosystem.
You know roughly where they have made camp, but won't be able to get there yourself. Time for you to design a robot program that can navigate through the maze-like jungle without trampling over any plants or getting stuck in any dead ends. Once you've finished your tests to be sure it will work, you'll send them the code via satellite phone!
