Print and hand in this exercise at the beginning of the Sensors Lab. It will count as the quiz for the Sensors Lab

This assignment will introduce you to the fundamentals of Mindstorms programming. Each student will be assigned a programming task by their TA. You will write a program in Mindstorms that uses sensors to complete the task assigned to you.

Program A

This program will run motors A and B, reversing motor A after 4 seconds. Then, it will stop motors A and B when touch sensor 2 is released.

Program B

This program will run motor A while touch sensor 3 is released.  When touch sensor 3 is pressed, motor A will reverse for 2 seconds and stop.

Program C

This program will run motor A when light sensor 2 is less than 35. When light sensor 2 is greater than 35, it will reverse motor A for 6 seconds and then stop the motor.

Program D

This program will run motor A after 3 seconds when touch sensor 3 is released and then reverse motor A for 3 seconds when touch sensor 3 is pressed.  This program should continually check the sensor's state by jumping to the beginning.

Program E

This program will run motors A and B until touch sensor 3 is touched, and then will reverse the motor for 3 seconds and then all motors stop.

Program F

This program will run motor A after 3 seconds when light sensor 3 is greater than 40 and then reverse motor A for 3 seconds when light sensor 3 is less than 40. This program should continually check the sensor's state by jumping to the beginning.

Program G

This program will run motors A and B and wait for light sensor 3 to be less than 25. Then, the program will reverse motor B for 3 seconds and then all motors stop.

Program H

This program will wait for 4 seconds and run motor B. Then, it will reverse motor B when the distance of ultrasonic sensor 3 is less then 10 cm or run motor A for 1 second when the distance of ultrasonic sensor 3 is greater then 50 cm.

Program I

This program will run motor A for 3 seconds, and then wait for touch sensor 2 to be pushed.  Then, it will reverse motor A.  Then it will wait for touch sensor 2 to be released, and continually run this set of operations by jumping to the beginning of the program.
