ACO 5.0 - Coding Altino Cars

Coding is a very important skill to learn, the future will be full of it. Technology is evolving very fast, and coding is a big part of it, there are many inventions that use it, for example, all of the artificial intelligences that you know, are made from coding, Alexa, Google Home, Siri, all of them. To control our car, we used the 'Go', 'Steering', and 'delay' commands. The go command was used to control the motors, to move the car.  The steering command was used to steer the car to the left, straight, and right. The third command, delay, was used to holdup other commands. For the figure 8 course we petitioned for the 150cc speed bracket, we used the maximum speed which is 1000 on the motors, we used steering to drive around the obstacles and delay to time our commands. The trial and error process was very useful, me and my friend were set up to do it fast, one on the computer, the other placing the car, so we did it very efficiently.



In the 2nd challenge, we had to use new commands, such as, the While Loop, Array, Display Line, and Sound, We used all of them except array. The while loop was to loop commands so we did not have to type a lot of code. The display line was to control the dot matrix of the altino car, and the sound command was for changing the frequency of the soundboard, to make a siren. I would definitely trust a vehicle to give me an autonomous ride, I support new technology and that would be groundbreaking. I would be amazed by it, why would they put it out to the public if it's not safe? I do not think that autonomous vehicles will be used for emergencies, I think that the civilian autonomous vehicles will be programmed to avoid the path of the emergency car. I think it would be easier for ambulances and other emergency cars to get through.
