ELS20 – Move the robot using verbal instructions (EV3)

ELS20 – Move the robot using verbal instructions (EV3)

Lego Mindstorms EV3 v 1.2.1 for EV3 Firmware version 1.09H

In this interaction the student is asked to use verbal instructions to get the robot to move in certain ways as described below. The target is to improve verbal communication of directions and movements.

  1. The student is asked to move the robot using verbal instructions towards a particular object ( The robot is moved remotely by the teacher/therapist).
  2. The student is asked to move the robot around the room by giving verbal instructions. ( The robot is moved remotely by the teacher/therapist).
  3. The student is asked to take the robot around a trail using verbal instructions.

The Edurob Curriculum document provides further information on the use of this interaction in ELS20.

The robot may be controlled via either of the following 2 methods:

Using the IR sensor and RemoteControl app:

  • Both up buttons forward
  • Both down buttons backwards
  • One up and one down spin on the spot
  • Using the tracks individually causes the robot to move and turn
  • Toggle button at the top of the remote causes the third motor to run moving the head and arms

Using the stepwise EV3 remote app, the 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.
