CIS*1500 – Week #7 Computer Lab #6 Case Study : We are the robots Duration: 50 minutes Topics: strings loops conditional (switch, if, else) This lab is designed to closely follow the classroom lab this week. Introduction: In this week's activity we will write a program to control, or “interface” with a robot designed to drive around the surface of mars, and collect samples. The robot understands six commands: N – This causes the robot to move north, 1 m. E – This causes the robot to move east, 1 m. S – This causes the robot to move south, 1 m. W – This causes the robot to move west, 1 m. $ - This causes the robot to collect a sample at its current location. X – This terminates the robot. The robot moves about an X-Y axis and begins at the position (0,0). North is the positive Y direction; South is the negative Y direction.

Unformatted text preview: East is the positive X direction; West is the negative X direction. The robot will read a command (a string of characters from the user), and then perform the movements, sample collecting, and exit. Example: If the command entered is: NNEE$X The robot will move from (0,0) to (2,2), collect a sample, and then terminate. Example: If the command entered is: SSSW$X The robot will move from (0,0) to (-3,-1), collect a sample and then terminate. Example of the interface: Example of running the program (with input NNSE$W$X) : Example of running the program (with input NESW$X) : Example of running the program (with input NSSSS$N$N$X) :...
