Break down the task

Before you begin coding, it is important to understand the behaviors needed so Moby can complete the task of scoring a Mobile Goal using the GPS Sensor.

Watch this video to break down the behaviors of the robot needed to complete the task.

Build the project

First, launch web-based VEXcode V5, and set your starting configuration. Then add blocks to build the project yourself, or open the example project below.

Set your starting configuration to position D, facing West (toward the blue Alliance Mobile Goal), with zero Preload Rings.

For steps on how to select Moby's starting location, see this Knowledge Base article.

Or, open the 'Score with GPS Sensor' example project. 

View this article from the Knowledge Base for information on how to open an example project.

Test and observe the project

Now that you have built the project, you will now test it and observe Moby's behaviors as it moves and scores on the Field.

Watch this video to test the project and observe how the robot moves.

For steps on how to select Moby's starting location, see this Knowledge Base article.

For more information about coordinates on the Tipping Point Field, see this Knowledge Base article.
