Robotic Amusement Park
April 27, 2004
Now we are starting on programming the car to go along a line and stop at the crossing for the next ride..
We had the car moving just forward.
It waited until the message came that a person was through the turnstile.
Then the car moved to the merry go round and sent a message to it to go.
After it was done the merry go round sent a message back to the car and it went forward again
Using this program we can get the moving and stopping to work.
Next we will modify the program to include directing which ride goes.

Mrs. Simon Is Back!
We got to show her the Amusement park.
The rides are interesting to watch but the most interesting part is the programming.
The rover waits for mail then follows the line and then sends a message to the next merry go round.
The first RCX has a turnstile. When a person passes through, a mail message is sent to start the rover.
The rest of the RCX are running a similar program that just waits for mail. Those programs have music in place of times.
