next steps

 July 11-

  • buy 3 photo resistors
  • find the resistance value of certain colours with the photo resistor
  • create the color detection sensor
  • buy a toy car model for the base
  • buy colored tape
  • figure out how to program the color detectors, so that the car moves in response to color detection

 july 18-

  • make 2 sensors
  • complete the final car model
  • program the color sensor’s output with the motion of the car

july 24-

  • get the program to work with the motors and color sensor
  • connecting the color sensors and motor
