challenge: drive your robot through the maze
end
• place robot at the edge of the plywood at the start and say GO!!
• stop the watch when the robot hits the back of the parking spot at the end

•
use the transmitter / receiver pair to allow remote control of your robot
see how fast you can navigate through the maze (take turns with your partner!!!)
give your ID to the instructor to check out a transmitter / receiver pair
complete challenge in teams of two
teams can time each other’s runs
write team members names and times on the white board after completing a run
you can use the playing field on a first come basis
give priority to other teams if you have already had two attempts (share after that)

pull high
pull low
solder the middle row to the
upper row to pull pin 7 high
(this pair is labeled as #7)
NOTE: this has already been done . . . no need for you to solder!

play nice 
receiver 7
• transmitter 7 controls receiver 7
• using another transmitter at the same time jams
communications between transmitter 7 and receiver 7

living with the lab
getting started
• look at the data sheet above for wiring the receiver
• some tips are available at the following link:
• http://www2.latech.edu/~dehall/LWTL/home/content_projects.html
• find “servos – manually creating pulses” to recall wiring your servos
• find “servos – using the servo library” to assist with programming
• find the presentations that remind you how to use if and if/else statements
• ask your instructor for help if you get stuck for a while
you can do this!!!

living with the lab
transmitter / receiver pairs 1 to 8
• The following slides show how the eight pins can be pulled high or low
through soldering to create 30 unique transmitter / receiver pairings
• There are 28 = 256 possible pairings
• If all 256 are desired, it would be nice to treat the pins as digits of a binary
number . . . the soldering scheme here is just for convenience
