In this training session, you’ll learn how to program your amazing SPIKE Prime Robot Vehicle (RV) to get it moving FORWARDS and BACKWARDS.
Controlling your robot with confidence and accuracy is a key step for any robotics engineer – good luck! Remember to give your RV a great name!
On the next slide (click on the arrow) there is an image of an example program that will bring your robot to life and get it moving FORWARDS. Write this program on the SPIKE Prime App and run it. Did your RV respond as you expected?
If you ever get stuck, or want learn more (like moving backwards), just click on the example program to watch a short training video from a LEGO Education Certified trainer.
Ask a team member to put a LEGO piece on the floor, a short distance from your robot. Can you estimate the distance in cms and then program your RV to move to it (without crashing!) and return to its starting position? Take turns to set each other these distance challenges – working as a team!
