There are common patterns when working with LEGO Mindstorms Sensors that could be applied to Sound, Rotation, Gyro, Color and all the other sensors.
LEGO Mindstorms EV3 and NXT include many sensors. Use of the sensors is what makes the robot powerfull.
This is a version of the Gazon robot that has a single color sensor and is useful for cases where you still have not purchased a second color sensor, but need to start working on the FLL competition season missions

This incredibly compact SPIKE Prime Box Robot is made for competitions like FIRST LEGO League (FLL) and World Robotics Olympiad (WRO). Whakatae (from Maori's word "whakataetae", which means "competitive") is long 17 LEGO units and is with a width of 15 LEGO units. In front of the wheels it has two color sensors which it uses to align. Whakatae also has two Large motors for moving and has two medium motors for attachments!
It's has "V2" in its name, because it's the second version of Whakatae - LEGO Education SPIKE Prime Competition Box robot. The difference between the two is that the first one can be built with only a Large Motor and a Color sensor in addition to the Base set, while this one needs an additional ball bearing. This provides this robot with a lot more stability and can be seen as a true upgrade to the first version.

Mintonet (engl. Mintonette) comes from the name of the first iteration of volleyball.
The robot can move only forward and backward, without turning, with the help of a large EV3 motor. Another large motor is used to shoot. The robot uses an EV3 ultrasonic sensor to detect its partner and throw a ball at it.

Build from LEGO EV3 Core and Expansion set this robot looks like a scorpion. The Scorpion strikes, when it sees a pray with the ultrasonic sensor and you can use the touch sensor and the rotation sensor to control the spike movement. It has a scissor mechanism at the back using a system of gears and levers.

The CubeHunter uses the ultrasonic sensor to detect a ball or cube. Next, the robot catches it and reads the colour of the object using the EV3 colour sensor. The building instructions are suitable for classes with students and if you are working alone at home.

Umjaho - from the language of the Zulu tribe. It means "competition"
This LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robot has three sensors - touch, color and ultrasonic. When the touch sensor is pressed the robot starts moving. The color sensor is used for following lines and the ultrasonic sensor is used to detect any robots in front of the robot.

Barco from spanish means boat.
The robot is made to look like a sail ship. The sails are made out of technic panels, attached in various ways to create the best look. Otherwise the robot uses two motors with tyres to move. At the back of the robot there is a Gyro sensor, which helps it maneuver.

Tohuru, from Maori, means owl.
Tohuru is a SPIKE Prime robot, that holds onto an edge and looks at the nearest object! It uses two medium motors to grip an edge between two wheels. In addition it has a head made out of an ultrasonic sensor, attached to a large motor, which allows it to turn 360 degrees! And most importantly, it looks like an Owl!

Uylam is a robot that simulates a stormy environment for its ship. It is made using two piston-like mechanisms powered by a Large motor and offset by 90 degrees to create shaking similar to that of big waves. The ship itself is made out of a medium motor on a turntable and a gyro sensor attached to them. The purpose of this is to explore what is the best position of a ship compared to the waves, so that it sustains the least amount of shaking.

This WRO robot is designed to collect a lot of ping pong balls in its container. It's built with LEGO Mindstorms EV3 45544 and 45560 sets. These are the LEGO Educational sets. The robot has two chains that collect the balls and push them into the container attachment. This is one of the larges robots we've uploaded at FLLCasts yet. You could learn a lot by following the building instructions and paying attention to the details of how this robot is built. All the alignment, all the connections. Really beautiful.

Big Wheelster, as his name suggests, is a robot with a big wheel! The Big Wheel is made out of the SPIKE Prime Baseplates. The robot also has an interesting steering mechanism! At the front we have added a touch sensor, to detect an obstacle and hopefully avoid it.

Swing game is a SPIKE Prime robot that is a game played by two people. The goal of the game is for both LEGO people to reach the center of the swing, without it tipping over on either side. The LEGO poeple are placed on motors, connected to two technic gear racks, that move along the swing. The motors are moved by two controllers, one using a color sensor and one using a Large motor. If one of the LEGO people moves too far without the other doing the same, the swing will tip and game over! Good luck and have fun!
