Shot-Roller from the Discovery Book

This robotic turret is described in Chapter 8 of the Discovery Book. It is used to illustrate the concept of how sensors can be used on autonomous robots.

In one configuration, Shot-Roller rolls around while looking for objects to fire zamor spheres at. In another program, the robot can be remote controlled with Touch Sensors as inputs.

Besides running an autonomous program, it can also be controlled remotely with Touch Sensors

Robotsquare is currently being updated, which means that it may look a little different (and not very polished) for a while. All the content and pages should still be there, though. It should be back and fully operational soon. Thanks for your patience!
