Building My Robot

My team is Team 4.  My team members are Julia ( and me. My robot is named Hugo.  My experience with building my robot was really fun and programming took a while to fix the angle it would turn, but we finally got it. First we built the robot with the Lego pieces. Then we got the code from online. We created a new Java project in Eclipse called Bumper Car. We added the Libraries and converted the Project to Lego Mindstorm NXT. Then we uploaded the code to the robot and the robot would go forward. If it bumped into something, it would go backwards, rotate, and go forward again. We changed the angle degree so it would make a bigger turn. The “eyes” are sonar sensors and if it sensed an object nearby, it would turn.

Here is a picture of my robot.
