Group Robopower: Methods

3 May

Our group is drawing FAU for our project. We have come up with a way to draw this without taking big steps. We will divide and conquer this task into small steps in order to accurately draw FAU. To complete this task, we need to have our robot draw a horizontal line, vertical line, and make a 90 degree turn.

            To draw the F, we need to be able to draw a vertical line first to the North. Then, make a 90 degree angle turn and draw a horizontal line to the East. After, we pick up our robot, and place it halfway between the first line we drew and point it to the East. Then, we draw a horizontal line to the East.

            To draw the A, we need to draw a vertical line to the north and make a 90 degree turn. After, we need to draw a horizontal line to the east and also make a 90 degree angle turn again. Then, we need to draw a vertical line to the south. Lastly, we will pick up our robot and place it halfway between the first line we drew, and draw a horizontal line to the east. To draw the U, we would first start in the north, unlike how we started to draw the other letters. We would draw a vertical line southward and make a 90 degree angle turn. After, we would draw a horizontal line to the east and make another 90 degree angle turn. Lastly, we would draw a vertical line northward. Below is a diagram of this process and is numbered to make it a bit clearer.
