Volume 3: Acceleration and Deceleration
Created for the intermediate LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 user.
There is nothing more exciting than watching something you’ve built move, except perhaps making it move faster. And that’s exactly what we’re going to do. Just like driving a car, we are going to make our robot accelerate from a low speed to a high speed in a controlled manner.
Of course, once we’ve got our robot moving fast, we may have to slow it down or decelerate. Again, just like driving a car, we are going to make our robot decelerate from high speed to low speed in a controlled manner.
Acceleration and Deceleration programs will be presented for:
- Free Motion
- High Speed or Fixed Radius Turns
- Line (Edge) Following
- Gyro Following
