Lego Self-Driving Car Robot Tries to Run Away from Home

Description

When I try these Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0 car robots outdoors they don't usually work. Something about the cement surface doesn't agree with the ultrasonic sensor so it always detects an obstacle when there isn't one. On the tiles though this little rover works fairly well. It even manages to recover from minor slips over the edge. If I left it for long enough and with the gate open my robot car would make it out onto the road. If there were no cars it would be interesting to see how far such a simple Lego car could get all by itself with no human intervention. The next step would be to make a whole swarm of them. And then give them wings... Anyway, if you're wondering, the little fella is back indoors recharging ready for his next adventure. I'll try adding more sensors and programming but I must admit I'm impressed with the functionality of this very simple program. It navigates my house better than a Roomba!
