ELS01 part 1 – Geometric Shapes (EV3)
Lego Mindstorms EV3 v 1.2.1 for EV3 Firmware version 1.09H [with Gyro sensor software block – download it here and use the menu “Tools/Block Import” to add it]
This EV3 build swaps in the Gyroscopic sensor for the touch sensor.
The robot can:
- ask the student to find one of the 3 shapes
- move in shapes on the floor
- offer randomised reward/try again speech
- verbally describe the 3 shapes.
The interaction may be used to teach about shapes as described in ELS01 Part 1 in the Edurob curriculum document.
Robot can perform the following separate programs:
Program path: “ELS01p1/MoveSquare” – Square (moves in a square)
Program path: “ELS01p1/MoveTriangle” – Triangle (moves in a triangle)
Program path: “ELS01p1/MoveCircle” – Circle (moves in a circle)
Program path: “ELS01p1/welldone” – Random well done reward sound
Program path: “ELS01p1/tryagain” – Random try again sound
Program path: “ELS01p1/SaySquare” – Verbal description of square
Program path: “ELS01p1/SayTriangle” – Verbal description of Triangle
Program path: “ELS01p1/SayCircle” – Verbal description of Circle
Program path: “ELS01p1/AskSquare” – Asks student to find the square
Program path: “ELS01p1/AskTriangle” – Asks student to find the Triangle
Program path: “ELS01p1/AskCircle” – Asks student to find the Circle
These may be called using the Edurob EV3 Controller App

The following file can be used if your robot had no Gyroscopic sensor. file: Shapes1.zip (Download). This may require some minor tweaking depending on the robot build in order to get the robot to draw the correct shapes.
