ELS01 part 3 – Stepwise Remote Control (EV3)

ELS01 part 3 – Stepwise Remote Control (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:

  • move one step forwards or backwards
  • turn 90 degrees left or right
  • turn 30 degrees left or right
  • move through a 90 degree arc
  • offer randomised reward/try again speech

The interaction may be used to teach about moving in a shape as described in ELS01 Part 3 in the Edurob curriculum document.

Part 3:
Robot can perform the following separate programs:
Program path: “ELS01p3/MoveForward” – move 1 step forwards
Program path: “ELS01p3/MoveBackwards” – move 1 step backwards
Program path: “ELS01p3/Turn90R” – turn 90 deg right
Program path: “ELS01p3/Turn90L” – turn 90 deg left
Program path: “ELS01p3/Turn30R” – turn 30 deg right
Program path: “ELS01p3/Turn30L” – turn 30 deg left
Program path: “ELS01p3/MoveArc” – move through an arc of 90 degrees.
Program path: “ELS01p3/welldone” – Random well done reward sound
Program path: “ELS01p3/tryagain” – Random try again sound

These may be called using the Edurob App.
