Description

With TETRIX PRIME and EV3 components, students will build a unique stationary robot that acts as a security door with a two-phase access procedure. The objective is to complete a program that will wait for access to be demanded through the interaction or sensors and then to wait and respond based on sensor data by activating one or both phases of the procedure. Details found in the curriculum’s final Complete Activity.
