FLL 2022: Collect and Align - How to accomplish M04 Solar Farm with Chain Monster box robot - FIRST LEGO League SUPER POWERED 2022-2023 Pro Preview

In this video tutorial we accomplish the FIRST LEGO League 2022-2023 SUPER POWERED mission called M04 Solar Farm. We use the chain monster box robot along with a passive attachment that helps us collect 3 of the energy units. The interesting thing about the mission is the collection of the units, of course, but also the way this robot manoeuvres when there is not enough space. It aligns to the lines, it uses the color and motion sensors. Really advance way to align the robot.

In this video tutorial, we accomplish the Solar Farm, where we have to collect these energy units from the Solar Farm from the FIRST LEGO League 2022-2023 SUPERPOWERED. It's the fourth mission in our five-mission run. Here is the robot approaching the mission model, and the mission model consists of just three energy units in the solar farm. As it approaches, we use the front side of the attachment where we will collect. You see how we collect with the attachment, and after we close the container, we have to do this advanced alignment here to make sure we are aligned correctly and can approach the mission on the other side of the mission model, and collect the other units.

One of the most challenging things about this robot and this mission, when collecting these energy units from the solar farm, was that there was not enough space here for such a large robot with such a huge attachment. It's just difficult to navigate. You can hit here the second model or the energy storage or back on the reservoir. It's just difficult. That's why we are using the lines to align the robot and to follow them to navigate. Let's see exactly how we do it. Here it is. This is the fourth mission in our five-mission run, where we must somehow navigate this tight space. That's why we use a lot of alignment. In the programming tutorial, you've seen how we use this alignment. Alright, here, we move, we align to the first line. Then, we move back, and then we must somehow turn the robot around. You see there are some additional alignments there that are happening that help us navigate the robot. I just wanted you to have a close view of this because it might be useful. See you in the next tutorial.
