Open Roberta – How to Program a Robot on the Internet
You would like to program a robot, but don’t have one at hand? In this case, Open Roberta is just the thing you need!
In this module, you will learn how to program an EV3 Lego robot – and all of this happens online.
Because of Open Roberta’s clear programming interface, it is easy to get familiar with the EV3-Robot. There are motors, various sensors and LEDs you can use to let the robot park, follow a black line or move around different objects. Some instructions will help you to reach your goal step by step. It is also possible to save your projects online so that you can continue to program the robot at home.
This module was developed to enable all students to experiment with the popular EV3-Robot by Lego Mindstorms without buying the expensive robot. Roberta created a simulator which can be used without prior knowledge in computer science. Thereby simple commands (e.g. commands to control the motors or to use the sensors or loops and if-then-commands) are taught slowly and practically.
