Autonomous vehicles hit the road!
After 6 weeks of hard work, the iSTEM class completed their robotics assessment today. They were tasked with coding their robots to represent autonomous vehicles that had to drive through a city and collect a passenger at a “Driverless Uber Pickup Zone”. The city included school zones where their robot had to slow down, pedestrian crossings, roundabouts, and one-way streets. The students had 90 minutes to inspect the city design and then code and test their robot. Throughout this term, students have been learning about autonomous vehicles and the future of driverless cars, as well as how to code functions for their robots to perform different maneuvers. Today they had to put it all into practice within a time limit, and they performed outstandingly under the pressure!
