StringBot: Program It

  • Mark Bell
  • James Floyd Kelly


The StringBot is a unique little bot. When you ask someone to describe a robot, my guess is that he or she will probably have a mental picture of a wheeled robot or a bot with legs. Our StringBot has neither—it’s going to move along a string. But whether your bot has wheels, legs, or some other method for moving, it has to be programmed properly to accomplish its desired tasks. The StringBot needs to move along a string, successfully drop a small object into a jar, then return to you. This chapter will show you how to make that happen.
