In this video tutorial we demonstrate the behavior of a LEGO Mindstorms Robot Inventor robot when we use the Motion sensor. The Motion sensor was also referred to as Gyro sensor in previous versions of the LEGO Mindstorms Robot. We do not enter into the details of the programming and you can download the programs from the course lesson, but we make a demonstration of how the robot turns to about 95 degrees when we try to turn it to 90 degrees, we explain why and we suggest a way to improve the behavior of the robot.

The Motion sensor detects three types of angles by three axes. The goal of the tutorial is to make the robot turn precisely when we turn with the robot. Generally when we turn to 90 degrees the robot will turn slightly more. We ask the robot to stop at 90 degrees but it does not stop. We discussed why and how. When the motors are powered with a power of 50% or with 100% the robot will behave in different ways. In the LEGO Mindstorms Robot Inventor Programming class we will enter into more details about the programming and explain the program.
